The obvious slim groove right of Surface Tension is an underrated route. Abseil down to a small sapling stance and climb back up with a technical start AND finish. Cleaned, in good condition, and worth **, August 2014.

Made the mistake of traversing to the belay rather than abseiling. Managed to stay mostly dry to arrive at the second most uncomfortable belay stance I've ever encountered. My feet really enjoyed the narrow bendy sapling trunk. The belay was made all the more entertaining by my climbing partner showered me with mud, insects and plants as he cleaned the route on lead. I then had a great time on the muddy cracks and crimps. The only thing that could have made it better would have been falling into stagnant water and swallowing choking on a used condom. All in all a classic route. ***

Best E1 within 50 miles of Glasgow! Could use more traffic... Don't ab down - traversing around to the base is half the fun! Not too bad to get round to the sapling and can belay off reasonable gear.
