180m, 6 pitches. Easy start, then slightly tricky traverse across short slab; then easy upwards to base of white slab. Up middle of White Slab, then rightwards out to arete -exposed with little protection. Easy finish up chimney.

Ticklists: Scottish 3 and 4 star multi-pitch routes.

P1 surely harder than an ungraded S. More like 4b technical. Scary traverse fun. Led P3 up white slab, and it is poorly protected, though got a nut in half way to spike on arête. Walk down from rake. While climb grade more like VS 4b because of lack of protection.

Nice and varied route with some good climbing. I'd have thought worth VS 4b/4c? Led p1 & 3.

An excellent climb and improbable finish.

Helen did the two tricky pitches: awkward traverse, and White Slab.

Quite good. Scrambled back down then carried the bags up Central Buttress, cross the plateau the slithered down the manhole to the Cioch. Rain came on but did Crack of Double Doom, back down the manhole then scared ourselves silly slithering down Cioch Corner in the wet...
