Anti-faff ?Jul AltLd O/S Not sure where to start really. We were nursing weary legs from an engagement with Cir Mhor the previous day, so the slog up from the campsite was particularly withering. We didn’t manage to find any sort of a path coming up from Glen Rosa which should have had some alarm bells ringing for a Classic Rock route... Once on the route I inadvertently tried to send my climbing partner up an overlap and death slab which I assured him was the start of the second pitch. After much swearing and huffing and puffing he came down and demanded to see the guidebook description, which, it turned out, I had misread and belayed in the wrong place. He instantly forgave me. The rest of the route went slightly better except for a rope tangle on the traversey pitch which I doubt Spider-Man would have put his name to. Eventually we topped out in lovely sunshine and strolled back along the ridge to the campsite for pizza and medals chuffed to have ticked the last Classic Rock route on Arran. When it became apparent that way may not have ticked the right route after all and might not have even climbed on the right crag there was some gentle ribbing which passed quickly and definitely won’t get brought up at the Club Dinner.

Phil_Brock 19 Apr Lead O/S Long day out - started late after taking the first ferry then setting up camp at Glen Rosa. Long bushwack from the path through boggy terrain (despite good weather) took a while and then identifying the right rock buttress took a bit of thinking as we were coming up from Glen Rosa and the guidebook photo was taken from a long way left. Finding the exact starting point then took a bit longer but eventually found the relevant scratches in the rock. First pitch was easy if a bit lacking in gear then promptly got lost on the second pitch - guidebook description was confusing and I ended up doing a hard (4c / 5a) rockover move onto a thin slab then another thin step left followed by 10 metres of gearless slab padding before building a belay in very dirty cracks. Actual route was to traverse out left on underclings - much easier (had gone that way first but decided it wasn't the right way as guidebook said you had to get onto the next the slab!). Start of the next "pitch" was then more unprotected slab padding before we got back on route and the rest was straightforward if a little bold at times. Getting dark by the time we got to the top and a long walk back to the campsite!

Conor1 9 Apr, 2011 2nd β Top quality. Lots of padding interspersed with rock-overs through the overlaps and 1 short steep section. Some of the belays are less than commodious and the pitches quite run-out at times, albeit on easy ground.

johannes 2 May, 2010 Lead O/S It rained sleet halfway up. The step onto the exposed nose is basically unprotected - you won't fall to death, but nothing will stop you from hitting the big ledge 3m below.

alan moore ??, 2009 Solo Never found pitch 2 ("cross the slab"?). Crux pitch is a traverse 3 feet above a grass ledge that you can walk across instead. Not a Bad route. Made a good link up with Sou'wester slabs/upper rosa

oscaig ??, 1990 Lead O/S Led all. My 1st climb. Bitten to buggery on belays by some murderous midges. Cocked-up the ropework and suffered terrible (scary) ropedrag on the overlaps. Was my partner's first climb too and he refused to take any leads - just chain smoked with shaking hands through the belays. Missed last ferry home and had to doss on the island. Set the tone for many years and climbs to come really! Mostly easy padding with few delicate slab overlap rockovers.
