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.

Simon Caldwell 19 Apr, 2019 - Fun, though more for the locations than the quality of the scrambling - would be much better in winter I think. Sadly route finding is no longer a problem, it's just a question of following the crampon scratches.

Mike505 30 Sep, 2013 Solo Very strong winds but sheltered once climbing. A fun climb for us but we didn't take on a little gully/ chimney near the top because (for us) it was simply too risky without gear.

Yoshi 11 Aug, 2013 Solo O/S Absurdly windy. Fascinating route with a plethora of choices line wise. Some of the chimney exits were, frankly, terrifying in the gale-force winds we were battling though. One notably touch and go moment, I came close to a long, wind-propelled, flight down the glen.

Only a hill 13 Sep, 2009 Solo O/S A serious route, with several short hard cruxes, the two hardest being narrow vertical chimneys that are very committing. An excellent knife-edge section at the end. Somewhat vegetated: would be a better winter route, but still worthwhile in summer.
