βeta: 50m rope more than sufficient from new higher blue anchor rope as long as you use the loop extended below. Ensure that you descend to the left of the crag (looking out). Barely overhanging, had feet contact with rocks almost all the way.

βeta: It says in the guide book that a 60m rope is required for abseil off the top but a shorter (30-40m) rope can easily get you down in two pitches with a big ledge half way down on the right!

βeta: One of the easiest but also most memorable climbs I've ever done. My boots fell apart, it was a glorious day and looking into the loch was magical, rope required for the ab. I was very tired by the end of it. Worth a trip to Skye if this is all you do.
