βeta: The photo topo of the SMC selective (2005) is clearest. However, Latter's guide "Scottish Rock Vol.1 South" (2012, original) seems more accurate in description overall than it and definitive "Glencoe" (2001), in particular the pitch lengths. Note that the suggested P2 belay in Latter's is not recommended (the gear isn't good), and better climb further up for several metres (a block and peg on the shelf up and left of the ramp, as of 2019 summer). The last pitch is 4c as in Latter's; you can't reach the last couple of pitches in one big 45m pitch as described in the SMC selective (2005).

masa-alpin 15 Jul AltLd O/S Character-building experience. Kevin lead P1 and 3, and I did P2 and 4. Though it had been sunny (but little widn), the crux P2 was pretty wet. P2 is sustained and steep (and mossy and wet), but there are just enough positive holds if far apart in between. I made a crux travserse fairly low with desperate wet and mossy holds higher up. At one stage higher up, I had to rely 100% on a wet and mossy finger jam (so did Kevin). A foot popped out of the blue at one stage as a flat edge which appeared to be dry was in fact like glass due to it being very thinly coated with alga-type moss – it was a miracle I managed to cling on a poor left hold. It was a long and intense lead… P3, which Kevin lead, is poorly protected and the line is not obvious (a wee dirty), though less steep. After topping out, scrambling back down (with a help of an in-situ peg) to the bottom of Slime Wall (hairy!). An all-day adventure.
