Rockfax Description
The broad dominant rib on the right-hand side of the south face gives a stunning line. Scramble up to a belay below the rib. Climb to a ledge and continue up the left-hand side of the rib to a bulge at mid-height. Move over the bulge and climb direct to a large thread on a block. Either lower-off/abseil from the thread or climb a short way to the top. © Rockfax

Don't know how anyone else hasn't mentioned it, felt mega bold. Almost all the gear was marginal. Few micros, useless gold dragon, sling on a tiny spike and some small wires. Don't know what I was missing. The climbing was technical and thin moving to and through the bulge. Defnnitly didn't want to fall off. Even the thread felt a bit hollow! Another hard bold move on the top slab. The approach is best to go past the Bothy, all the way round the lake, staying by the shore, crossing a small stream until you get to the spur (that meets the almost island). Avoid the big big by following the edge of the spur (past tiny fallen down hafod) and then up on to a col on the spur, then head uphill straight for the crag, in the direction of the big freestanding boulder (heather on top) passing 2 more before hitting the scree. Driest fast way... 1hr
