Set off at half two after a lazy lunch on the shore of Loch Linnhe, choosing the 'short and brutal' one hour ascent. The poor topo/route description in the SMC guide had me reading one-handed mid-route and reversing the not 4c bits but we eventually arrived at the terrace in good form. Pitches 3 & 4 of ungraded climbing (severe) were supposed to continue direct but after failing to reconcile the rock features, the topo, the route description and the grade; I made a committed assault on the lesser of several evils and emerged triumphant at a flake after a 5a crack and a 4c traverse. It was later than 8 now so prudence deprived us of the views from the summit and Jenny shivered on the terrace paying out slack as I down-climbed the aforementioned. Reached the road at 11 o'clock. In the glen it was a warm black and starry as we resigned to a further 3km march back to the van. After 20 minutes the first car to pass stopped for my thumb and the armed police officer sat in the back with me, letting Jenny have the heated leather seat in the front. They said they weren't allowed to give lifts but I said, 'I won't tell anyone'. We got the tent up on the beach and by 1 in the morning Jenny had rustled up a salmon dinner which was washed down with cider then whisky. Ideal day.

Led pitches 2 and 4 (easy bit of pitch 3 really). Pitch 3 felt like the crux.

Top pitch is ungraded in the guidebook, but is probably about 4c.

Went direct on crux pitch; solid 5a at least but well protected. Top pitch also deserves 4c IMHO.
