The superb crack begins at the bottom of the trough. Climb the right side of the huge block with difficulty (2 hand jams will help). The entirety of the climb offers positive holds and perfect protection with a good, steepening finish.

Sean led originally but looked too good to just second, led on his gear to speed proceedings up, plus it was cold! Lovely climbing, just flows.

Not so plain sailing. Felt desperate, cracks full of bugs and the tide swirling around Gemma's feet. Rested on the gear a few metres from the top. Hard but superb climbing. One to come back to for sure. Great belaying by Gemma.

Ran out of steam at the top. Lovely route, except for an encounter with crack inhabitants...lots of them!

with Masa
masa-alpin 16/Aug/15 Lead O/S

Nicely sustained. Very good route. The downside is a mass of bugs in the crack in the middle sectionů It was rather both unpleasant and scary when my finger slipped in the crack because of thatů T-shirt is not recommended for that reason.

A perfectly formed crack climb; perfect rock and bomber gear. The route forces a range of techniques and flow of movement, creating beautiful climbing. Gets gradually harder as you move up wards but isn't cruxy, the pump arrived for the last few moves. Has to be the best e1 in central Scotland!
