3 star route. Contrasting climbing makes it good fun. Good gear when needed. Bit of a reach on p1 but shorties way with bit of tech thinking.

Both pitches definitely E1. P1 bold reachy runout fiddly.

Quite exciting when accompanied by thunder and lightening and torrential rain. Thankful for the handy tree allowing a hasty retreat!

P1 nice, committing, hard, micro-cams handy. P2 exciting waterfall abseil in lightning storm :o

Fiona Reid 01/Jun/18 AltLd O/S

In 3 pitches. Led 1 and 3. Pitch 1 is definitely 5b and quite bold but my style of climbing so I really enjoyed it. The corner on pitch 2 requires belief you'll stick and some thuggery. Mike was feeling a bit knackered after the corner so I got sent up the final pitch which required use of a knee at the crux - the more flexible will likely not need to do that!

Pitch 2, well protected you just need to go for it. We both thought p1 was 5b, very bold in places. Did normal pitch3 as per smc guide.

Tried to lead the second pitch but fell a few times on the steep black section after the belay ledge... Backed up and followed Will up on second

Took the small man's variation on pitch 1 (neither of us tall enough to reach the first good hold on the slab). Pitch 2 is overgraded and too short.

5b Finish No. 1, moving right under the black beak. Better finish than original

Great route, almost worth three stars, the pitches contrast well with technical slabby moves followed by steep, thuggy laybacking. Plenty of gear if you look around, spaced on first pitch though. Great finish is to finish up the arĂȘte to an airy mantle, heel hook at the top. Easier than Vindaloo and better protected.

On Ben's stag weekend. Led both pitches. Committing slab move above tiny gear! Upper corner was very good. Avoided the RH finish.

A really nice route climbed in less than nice weather! Another wet E1, ahh the Scottish 'summer' of 2011! Thought the moves to gain the slab were quite thin and committing.

Janey led p1. I p2. With rucksacks, which made me fluff the start of pitch 2 and fall, tried again and couldnt manage so ditched the sack and went for it. done. hauled bag up after, atleast its haul points finally got used!
