Outstanding route climbing the great corner in the middle of the crag. Despite the notoriety of the Scoop pitch, the subsequent pitch is the crux. Lovely climbing but on the descent take care not to dislodge loose rocks onto other climbers.

AndyGriffiths 7 Sep AltLd dog Excellent route. Great place to take my first trad falls, 3 of them on the crux pitch. In combination with running low on gear by the belay, it made for a harrowing mini epic of a pitch.

David Cooper 7 Sep AltLd O/S Led pitches 1,3,5. First and second pitches could definately do with gardening. The 3rd pitch scoop was certainly heady on lead, and the run up to the belay heavy on the calves, but props to Andy for taking pitch 4. Was fully entertained by his first lead falls on a nut, micro cam and insitu gear, and a pendulum across to the cracks, all from a very comfy belay. Even on second the tip-toe traverse felt precarious with the wet streaks. Pitch 5 involved entertaining dyno to heather due to wetness. Approach and walk off absolute shite. Views stunning. Free nuts at belay 2 for one lucky winner

eduardo 28 May, 2016 AltLd O/S Mike did a longer pitch 1 to include the scramble up, I ran p2+p3 together - no issues with rope drag on the run-out fun of the scoop traverse. P3 traverse had a seepage patch through it - couldn't avoid getting both feet and both hands (fingertips) in the wet - fine effort from Mike leading through this. Undercut traverse on last pitch doesn't have much gear. Filthy condition, lots of dead vegatation, esp lower down, didn't really detract from the quality.

hlegge 28 Aug, 2013 AltLd O/S I climbed the first hard pitch, then james led the second one. These two pitches were world class and gorgeous. The newer scottish guide sandbagged us at the top. Incredibly sketchy scrambling up heather with no decent holds or protection. After looking at the old guide, we realized that the new guide just got the top pitch wrong. Two sketchy abseils/ traverses eventually got us to the descent path but after an avoidable epic couple of hours.

John 'B' Hutchinson 28 Apr, 2013 AltLd O/S An early season ascent of Hammer and we paid for it by having to deal with alot of dampness! The quality pitches on this route are 3 and 4, both utterly superb. Beware the topo in Scottish Rock for pitch 5. The description says undercut the overlap but the topo directs you over it and up a lower portion of the headwall. Due to our confusion we ended up climbing the headwall in some pretty untravelled, exposed, 5b/c terrain and then a lot of heather pulling to reach the descent path! Unpleasant at the time but a suitably epic end to a great route.

andymoin 20 Apr, 2008 AltLd O/S Scramble up to the start wasn't very scrambly, so pitched up to the the heathery ledge, were we in the wrong place)? Route its self was great with loads of laybaking up slabby corners, was like something you'd see in America. I got the scoop which was easy and was followed by 20m of lovely layback corner. Also climbed the 4th pitch after Tim came down not liking the bit of wet on the critical traverse; scary leaving the corner but the moves were fine once committed. An awesome route in an amazing location and much easier than I thought it would be, canny wait to get back for some e1s.
