50m, 2 pitches. Very exciting slab climbing that could give HVS leaders nightmares and cold sweats, starting on a comfy "spectators ridge" on the frontal slab. P1 4c - Excellent teetering above the void with reasonable climbing and instant exposure leads to the easier rib and belay in the break. P2 5a - Place all your cams in the sharp flake and use it to pull on to the slab. Smear and balance up this - crux, serious fall potential - to a good hold and much easier climbing up and onto the next slab to finish.

Ticklists: Best slab climbs of the UK, Scottish 3 and 4 star multi-pitch routes.

Done this a couple of times. I agree with the upgrade to E1 for the second pitch but still feel that that might not be enough! We warmed up on this before vincent and I was far more scared on this than that.

Led crux pitch 2. E1 when it's windy, definitely. In fact, E1 anyway! Pretty terrifying teetering up on thin holds getting battered by strong gusts. Would be a very serious fall.

First pitch only, which was excellent. Intended to continue but looked even more serious than I was expecting. I'm not even sure that flake would survive if you fell on cams placed in it.

The climbing isn't very hard but it being a slab makes it feel very precarious with the lack of protection.
