Nice to see what this looks like. Looks pretty good actually...!

Really nice climbing, worth the bush whack to get to, one of the best central belt e1se I reckon!

Indeed. Surprisingly good nick in winter and not much bush-whacking. Deserves it's stars! Not sure this is just after the crux (which is 3m up ;)).

Yeh winters prob the best time, its nasty when the veg is up! Ifound the crux to be the layback just before establishing were Tim is. Agree getting round the roof above is tricky but it seam like good jamming to me.

I meant the crux was 3m up the route, sorry. I think I jammed that bit just there. Good chunky climbing anyway!

Aye surprised to see a piccie of this on here! Did it last night, nice moves. Thought getting off the floor was the first crux, followed by one just below the guy in the pic - not much for feet and the jamming crack was a bit slimey! Hidden gem for sure.

Just done this myself. I thought the crux(es) were getting off the floor, but then just before the crack bulges (ie just about where he is about to climb on the pic). Needs a precarious bridge to get the right foot up high... Or at least, thats how I did it!
Great climb, is there actually anyone living in the wooden hut there...?

Aye there were loads of local neds hanging around in the wee wooden hut who seemed to be adding bits to it. They were a bit surprised to see us, but all gathered round and watched us climbing!
Aye precarious bridging was my technique from start to finish. Friction for feet was surprisingly good though I thought.

I can confirm good friction! I found the crux at 2/3rds height where the crack widens, good arm jam and feet on not much, someone should clean this place up, room for loads of routes.. I would help :]
