120m, 5 pitches. Unsure of pitch one. Turfy ground leads leftward to the base of the big right facing corner on the rocky bulge in the centre of the face (beware of another near kick start). The second pitch follows this corner described as "a narrow ramp" in Scottish Winter Climbs. This leads to the right hand end of the traverse ledge. At the left hand end lies the steep third pitch straight up the corner, moving left to finish, just below a sitting room sized ledge. From the left and lower end of the big ledge move up on thin hooks to gain a slab and some gear (apparently), then trend right up steepening ground to the top.

βeta: Needs a better topo or description. Sounds like we went the same way as most folks but it doesn't tally with the topo in either SWC or AAatSH.
