150m, 5 pitches. Hard to find the right line in the first pitches and hs some very bold climbing, particularly pitch three.

A very adventurous day! A devious line up some pretty scary terrain, very bold, but with interesting and exciting technical climbing in places. 8 pitches overall to the plateau. Great leads from Ric and especially Andy on the hard stuff. Really hope the lady who fell today is okay.

Did as a three and went off route at pitch four, which meant I ended up taking a sketchy variation for the final pitch with daylight failing. Sarah did really well on pitch three. Good adventure.

Bold pitches 1,2, and 3. Fourth pitch was wet in places. The crux was well protected.

We also had issues with route finding. Great fun route with some great features though!

Now HVS 5a, and not surprising! Pitches 1, 2 and 3 have very little gear, and pitch 5 is definately 5a.

bit of a mad route, not sure if we were in right place, but called it quits half way up pitch 3 as gear was almost non-exixtent and bad head is infectious! having said that, what we did was fun and nice climbing, just hadnt expected it to be so bold.....

I hope we were on route! Pitch 3 felt a bit 5a-ish and had a serious run out to get up off the right end of the slab and through the overlap. The SMC guide (Cairngorms) is little better than useless for this route, as it is for many routes, for example a photo-topo of the Sand-Pyper area would be invaluable as this area is almost featureless. Also the guide should tell you how far to go right along the diagonal break on pitch 4 as this is not obvious and crucial to the route - we missed it.

Good route, in semi remote setting. Wondering line very difficult to oick the correct line at times. Gear is spaced at times.
