Good on them though, wouldn't fancy doing that route as it is, never mind in the shitty weather that's been round that way in the last few days.

Surely you mean Sron Uladal?

I thought the aid version was a harder proposition than the free version. Lots of crappy old fixed gear and the crux 20+ft roof is hard even on aid - esp since Doug Scott's original bolt disintegrated on us 5 yrs ago. Doesnt get done much these days. Definitely one of the best crags in the UK nonetheless.
