βeta: Large, loose, microwave sized block on the left at the second belay. Very loose. Didn't trundle as there were a few groups around. Take care!

βeta: Yep. The ravens. I've lost a fair bit of food to them over the years and even had them pick up my pack and my partners and dump them in the river when they didnt find our food.

βeta: Hi Neil, I’m almost certain that your rucksack was ransacked by ravens and not by other climbers! The Buachaille ravens are notorious and are capable of getting to food through almost all zips and buckles. The only reliable safeguard is to weigh your rucksack down with a fairly substantial rock. If you look through the posts for Agag’s Groove you’ll find that others have suffered too! Stewart.

βeta: climbed this route early on the 11th June, fine climb and yes very windy especially at the top and cold. Spoilt by someone from the two following parties who stole stuff principally all my food out of my rucksack left at bottom of the route. Left the camera on top of the sack, know doubt, not good enough! So lesson learnt Neil
