Amazing

Great photo - shows the exposure perfectly. Shows how the grit climbers are only playing at it, with their tiny routes.

I enjoy climbing on grit. The routes may be tiny but there are some powerful lines. Grahame

Isn't this image used in the 1992 SMC glencoe guide?

Definitely seen that somewhere before, think it's in the old SMC Guidebook right enough. Amazing photo.

Wow. The best actual climbing photo I have seen on here for ages, totally inspiring. Is the route as good as it looks?

Excellent photograph. Doesn't really matter whether it's been in a guidebook or not - excellent pic, committed climbers, committing route. First class!!!

For the record, this "ascent" ended with me taking a spectacular head -first whipper of the last pitch.
