βeta: The problem with the Gary Latter guide description is that you need to do the WHOLE of November Groove pitch 1 (35m), not just the first 24m. Do not belay at the detached block/pinnacle. From the NG belay the description and length (21m) of p2 then makes perfect sense. However, if you do belay at the block/pinnacle - climb up R into a groove (mossy rock) and up to bulges (5a climbing)- step L round rib to join the normal pitch 2 (cracks up slabby rib) and continue to stance/ledge below p3 - a 35m pitch - described as JtR Direct in the main SMC guide.

manuelabucci 27 Aug, 2016 AltLd The description of the route should just say: first pitch of November Groove. From the first anchor of November Groove (it is in the groove at the left of a detached pinnacle) climb the crack on the right of the groove. We got lost, and struggled to climb the crack more on the right. End of the second pitch: plenty of loose rocks, absolutely not nice. Third pitch, the one with so many expectations: poor, very poor rock. Nothing pleasant in climbing this route. Sorry, but we did not recognize 'Jack the ripper' as one of the best climbs in Scotland!

crobinson 28 Apr, 2010 AltLd Won't forget this route in a hurry. Led second pitch and nearly got blown off by the gusts of wind, chin came in handy as an extra grip.

Tom Last 28 Apr, 2010 AltLd A fall and a rest. Amazingly good route, shocking wind and exposure on second pitch, third pitch magnificent and hideously sustained - wouldn't feel like a pushover at E2.

Dr Toph 18 Sep, 2009 AltLd O/S Think I found a harder (off)route on the 2nd pitch, passing by some bail gear left by some others that made the same mistake :P , top pitch is a cracker!

willboydwallis 7 Jun, 2008 - A wonderful route. Well protected. Found myself giggling with delight in positions that would normally have me quivering. E1 5b is a reasonable grade for it. Definately not VS 5a!
