βeta: In big boots. Traverse ledge was fine - just very very wet. Went left near the top for the exposed finish - this was fine also. Blasted by the wind at the end - an all round amazing day out!

βeta: Found the traverse in to be pretty ok; a couple of steps across an exposed section, but nothing tricky, and fine other than that; was expecting worse! Route is really solid as well- obviously loose stuff on various ledges, but the actual climbing is all fine.

βeta: Traverse across the ledge was quite icy due to seepage. Didn't take our crampons so had to bail.

βeta: The traverse to reach East Buttress (Diff) involves the highly unappealing prospect of crossing a largely holdless section which streams with water even after a good dry spell (July 2021). For your feet there is a very narrow vegetated ledge which may still be connected to the ledge and which will sink shoes to about two inches, even after a good dry spell. Midges will emerge from the mossy face and land on yours, even after a good dry spell. And if you get past this, there is an abyss to step across and a section of protection-less vertical grass to negotiate before reaching a suitable belay and ultimately the start of the route. All of this takes place after a 3 hour walk and above 50m cliffs. If this is your sort of adventure 'enjoy'.

βeta: Surely one of the best routes of its grade in Scotland? Loose, but no more so than you'd expect on a big mountain route. Climbed together the entire way up.
