led P1. one of the hardest, most sustained hvs routes i've had the pleasure of leading! a brilliant introduction to fair head along with Girona and chieftain!

TR solo with micro traxion. First time trying this system. Works well. Like a wind tunnel in the upper part. Very enjoyable.

Amazing route, very thin and sustained all the way up the (what looked like somwhat slabby) corner groove second pitch. Very nice position on the hanging belay, I had a lovely sunny(!) view of Rathlin island.

Lead P1. P2 seemed slightly harder and more sustained

with Nicholas Marriot
Andrew Woods 18/Jun/16 Lead O/S

Really cool route, one of the fantastic routes to get you introduced to the exposed slightly overhanging bits of fairhead(at the top of P2). Also high in the grade for HVS so a good route for HVS climbers looking to move up the grades!

Being attacked my midges, had to escape quickly! Really nice sustained route though. Barely enough rope to do in one 60m pitch if you belay from right at the start of the crack.

P2. Gear not great on first part of P1. Climbing is sweet right thru. Sustained. Crux on P2 is testy enough with a series of moves pulled together. Classic HVS.

Lead P1, lovely varied climbing needing a range of techniques. P2 seemed a little trickier. Fortunately it stayed more or less dry after a shower as Misha was doing P1 and starting P2

with Misha
Misha 21/Aug/13 AltLd O/S

The starting slab was quite hard for the grade, albeit probably not helped by it being damp by the time I started! Really enjoyable rest of P1. Exciting finish on P2, quite tricky for HVS.
