50m. A stunning line, well protected throughout, and continuously good climbs with good rests in between. The route is the most obvious corner line on the grey (as opposed to "brown" in the 2018 SMC guide) rock from the bottom of the crag to near the top, located some 250m (as opposed to 150m in the guide) left of the main part of the crag (like Last Resort). Start the corner direct (4b) or slabby rock 3m right (as in the guide). Follow a series of corners with sustained interestedness to a large ledge (old peg; 35m), where a belay can be arranged. A 4-metre steep wall (5b) directly above (right edge of the ledge) is the crux. Follow an easy corner further to a grassy ledge, where you might be able to scramble off left (unconfirmed and it looked scary). A better option is to climb 6m of the finger-hand crack line direct (5b) to another grassy ledge (nb., the final move may benefit from prior cleaning; it is clean as of May 2019), or alternatively you can circumvent the wall from a slab on the right. You can easily scramble off left from there, or can climb a short (4m) final wall above to top out. Easily walk off left.

masa-alpin 14 May Lead RP I thought it would be a new route after an effort of cleaning etc spanning for 2 years, before realising it appeared on the new SMC guide (2018). Doh! Good route nonetheless. The grade of VS in the guide must mean "Scottish VS". It is E1 5b in the modern grading scale.
