The obvious crack behind a tree, with an entertaining finish. Start on the wall just right of "Shorskred" and "Between Contracts" (bouldery to a ledge beside the tree) to avoid the minging scramble.

Ticklists: Scottish Central Belt HVS.

Like Shoskred this is nice climbing but very over graded. Probably MVS 4b?

First HVS on lead :) The psychological crux for me was the move into the chimney before the top out, above gear onto rounded holds. Good variety of moves on the whole and ample opportunities for cam placements.
