55m, 2 pitches. A fine arete with a steep left wall and a grassy corner gully on its left gives an exhilarating climb with two contrasting pitches. At the base of the arete is a steep wall; start below this at the foot of an obvious shallow corner-groove.
1. 20m 5a climb the corner groove, exiting right. step right past heather and move up to base of the clean arete.
2. 35m 4b follow the arete with little protection all the way to the top.

arose 18 Oct, 2019 AltLd Thought the bottom pitch was nails. The gear is pretty shonky behing the loose flake and the move is certainly harder than 5a.

CaelanB 7 Jul, 2019 AltLd O/S No way is that first pitch VS 5a. I'd definitely give it a vote for E1 5b. In any case it's a great route!

Nathan Adam 27 Jun, 2019 AltLd O/S Led pitch 1. Feels a bit of a sandbag, not a route for the VS leader. Wouldn’t argue with HVS,5b or E1 for the first 10m of P1. P2 is lovely throughout and not nearly as run out as it looks. A few more ascents and this would be a modern Lochaber classic.

richardsavill 1 Aug, 2016 Lead O/S nice first pitch if a little dicey on the heather, 2nd pitch also very good, little pro as guide suggests but worth the short walk up the hill, awesome views!
