Do you have to descend the same way? That's the bit I don't fancy!
Michael Gordon - 05/Aug/13
As the guidebooks says "descend on all fives"!

Running is also an option.

Great photo in a stunning place. It's a great fun wee route especially the well worn gravelly bit at the bottom!
Mike Franks - 05/Aug/13
Thanks for the comments guys. As mike mentions the bottom is very crumbly and the climbing is quite delicate and consists of step on crystal, crystal surface crumbles, wipe shoe on leg and repeat until you think its going to hold. A little nerve wracking. makes it interesting though. Great route.

Hey Leuan, great shot, not been there, but it looks mighty exposed. Jon in BC.

Cracking shot and a clear sign of how midge/clegg repellant has come a long way these days. Bare chested on Arran! Who would of thought we would see the day.
