UKC

This fine ridge, one of the best in Scotland outside Skye, gives a splendid outing. Much variation is possible and this is the grade for the easiest line traversing from south to north.

FA. T.F.S Campbell, W. Douglas, J.H.Gibson, H.Fleming, R.A.Robertson, and Dr Leith 30/Jan/1892.

βeta: Originally though the airy stride was the diving board which lead to a whole bunch of confusion. The correct order is downward facing slabs to a wide groove, airy stride between two stone planks, scramble on to the ridge ahead, walk 20m or so and you are on the diving board. There should be an old peg and a large flake with ab tat on it.
