Misha 20 Aug, 2019 2nd O/S Total crap with no redeeming features. Even the bilberries (which there were a lot of, certainly more than there was decent rock) tasted bad. Phil led. Tim and Tom followed us separately.

Astilath 16 Jun, 2018 Solo Amazing setting. Loads of wildlife at the back of the cwm, foxes hunting among the boulders, too many different tiny birds to count, wild ponies. Shame the actual scrambling lasted only 10 minutes (literally). Sought out line of most difficulty/fun. Rock was good and coarse with a few loose blocks that didn't hinder progress. I'd say grade 2 is generous. Came down the grassy ridge to Gerlan walking straight towards the setting sun, spaghetti western style.
