A classic route giving superb wall climbing right of Death Cap, starting via the obvious crack through the initial roof.
Strenuous and technical.

Ticklists: 100 Aberdeen North East Classics!, Scottish 3 and 4 star multi-pitch routes, North East Outcrops - 3 and 4 star routes.

Psyched to get the onsight (albeit with some chalk to show the way). Worth the wait for a breeze

Fatigue of 3 days climbing caught up with me at the crux - one to go back for

Plenty of chalk to show the way. Not too pumpy but quite thin on the feet at times and very fall off-able! Brilliant.

Top rope to finish the day - did the crux three times cos the rope was too loose. Shouldn't have fallen off really as was at the break. First overhang tough too for 5c, crux 6a sequence is quite thin but gear looks good if you are strong.

Came off just after the crux. Clearly not as strong as Cowan yet... Great route!

Fell off after reaching the horizontal break just after the crux when my foot popped of a shit hold. Absolutly gutted. Will keep it as a ground up project.
