140m, 4 pitches. From the corrie, Head up the goat track until just beyond the fingers (if you can see em!) before leaving the track and walking up the steep grass into a shallow gully (well trodden). Route starts from a ledge on the left of the shallow gully with a thread belay low down. Could easily be done in 3 pitches with a 60M rope. Nice route in big boots when everything is soaking wet, but you still want to climb! Pitches 3 and 4 are the best.

Climbed in 3 pitches (40m, 60m, 40m). Believe we started on Fingers Direct on first pitch. Ended up belaying off an insitu peg on the slabs. Required a few delicate moves in approach shoes. Enjoyed top pitch over/around fingers - but a few loose blocks in places. Blowing a gale. Not much fun topping out.

A nice route. The day was cold and damp and the first pitch was a steep bog. Once you get out of the bog and onto rock the climb unfolds before you. You can climb a lot of this route without thinking too much about the moves. The final headwall is maybe V. Diff but it is only a couple of feet high and if you don't fancy it you can easily skirt round to the left into a broken gully. Climbed in approach shoes.
