90m, 5 pitches. Follow the summer line, easier if started to the right. This route faces south east and any sunshine rapidly strips the routes of winter conditions. To get a chance at this route and others on this face, it is necessary to wait for snowfall followed by a cloudy day.

Al_Mac 11 Feb, 2017 Lead dnf Aimed to do North Wall Groove but late to the party and didn't fancy waiting so went over to this as the cliff looked in good nick. By the time we got to the cave the route was melting out from underneath us in the sun. Bailed as the winds were building and the groove was beginning to drip. Really enjoyable climbing to there though!

jonnie3430 18 Jan, 2013 Lead O/S Woohoo! 3rd time I've walked in for this! The face strips mega fast in sun so clouds after snow are required. Superb route, no neve and little ice though frozen turf. Alex and Arthurs first winter climb. 6am start in Glasgow, back by half past three, a great day!
