βeta: As others have said, the loose flake on pitch 3 remains attached, for now. Avoiding using it makes the move a little harder and that section a little more sustained.

βeta: Excellent route. The only climbing pair in Lochnagar. It rained for about 30 mins but the route dries off very quickly. Due to very little traffic in 2020 there was some lichen on the slabby sections, when it was wet these became pretty slippery. Excellent exposure but always with protection. Did it in approach shoes and felt a bit stiff for S (only for a couple of moves). Scottish Rock does now grade it a HS.

βeta: Flake on the tower pitch(pitch 3) is very loose now. Could become significantly more difficult when it breaks.
