At UKC we are all climbers and we understand the strong urge to be outdoors as the weather is finally improving.

Please proceed with caution though. More details.

Ian Jones 31 Jul, 2011 AltLd O/S Subtle and delicate; no hint of a pump at all. Somewhat reminiscent of the west wing of Dinas Mot. Not quite Cloggy quality.

jameshiggins 19 Jun, 2010 AltLd O/S Baltic, v windy and showery at 7.30am in the Muick car park, but purseverance paid off! Full winter clothing the order of the day! Finished a tad off-route on pitch 4. Soft touch for E3 but quality non-the-less.

Neil Adams 19 Jun, 2010 AltLd O/S Quality Scottish mountain day - cold, windy and drizzling, yet somehow the route was dry. Felt like an absolute coup so get the route done under those conditions.

Chad123 30 Jun, 2008 AltLd O/S Awesome route with lots of interesting technical climbing in exposed positions. A little bit dirty and loose in places but doesn't detract from the quality. Top pitch is fairly exciting, other two are a bit easier (E2 or so)
