50m. A left-to-right traverse of the whole crag following the obvious break near the top, clipping bolts on existing routes. Start up “Tied Up” to its 4th bolt and then make steep moves on under-clings to join the high level break around “Turbine Charged”. From here, head rightwards on generally good holds in the break clipping bolts just above, with a pumpy crux around “Fleet Street”. Beyond “Twin Track” the climbing becomes easier along a ledge system (slightly crumbly in places) and you reach the double bolt lower-off of “The Bheaginning”. Lower off here (you will need at least a 60m rope to get down) or, for the full 100m tick, reverse the route (as per the first ascent, if your belayer doesn’t fancy following).

dominic o 6 Aug, 2017 Lead O/S First ascent (assuming no one has been daft enough to do this before!) Climbed onsight then reversed to strip gear giving a 100m outing. The name comes from the newly signposted driving circuit around the Highlands: “Scotland’s answer to Route 66” which seemed to be attracting a lot of traffic. Some might feel that the climb is similar to its driving namesake: A somewhat pointless excursion through already well known territory, with a high likelihood of getting in people’s way! Alternatively, it’s great fun (if the crag is empty!), a fine workout and a candidate for the longest sports climb in Scotland! There are a few pictures on my blog: https://rockaroundtheworld.co.uk/2017/08/06/creag-bheag/
