βeta: Bailed after pitch 5 (+/- 3?). One of the most serious solo pitches I've ever done on incredibly slimey rock. Tried to rope up for the next pitch which was soaking wet, had a little ground fall as there was zero friction. That shocked me enough to decide to bail. Lots of big boulders perched precariously on the edge of the gorge doesn't fill you with confidence. The guidebook was useless , it gives pitch descriptions referring to chockstones and waterfalls, which could honestly be any pitch. Very humbled and very glad we abandoned it when we did. Off to the Clachaig.

βeta: bit lose and wet in places but no where near as bad as imagined. Direct finish hardest part by a way, smaller the bag the better for this.
