The other diagonal crack is easier but not easy. A hard, committing start leads to some respite and continual interest to and through the obvious niches. E1 5b.

2 places were hard 5b for me, a shortie, where the crucial hold would be reached easily by climbes with the normal height. A couple of more 5b moves, too? Solid E1 5b.

Warm up. Ouch.

Hard start. Worth noting that the Scottish rock climbing guide has the wrong line in topo. Highland outcrops is correct.

Once I'd found the right start.

Felt hard for the grade, but may have been because it was slightly damp

Very good climb. Would get 3 stars on most crags, but here it is surrounded by more illustrious routes.
