Plain sailing (S/VS) up twin cracks into the corner proper. Good gear all the way with a long reach problem and smooth sided walls to justify the 5a at the top.

Ticklists: Scottish Central Belt HVS.

Steady to the crux near the top, laced the crack with gear and went for it. Think I bridged it with a funky palm off move on the blank wall. Exciting! Much better than Danger U.S.R. Great belay seat as well :)

Nice route, crux is pretty stiff for the short! Much faffing, multiple looks at crux (my first approach was the answer) then managed to untie shoe lace swapping feet below crux, rested on gear to re-tie it as reversing back to the big ledge isn't an option at that point. After re-tying lace nailed it first go. No falls but not clean. Next time...

When I attempted it for the first time a while ago I got a horrible attack of diarrhoea halfway up, dogged up in desperation. Today, with good health, it was a very pleasant climb.
