A good route to get back into proper rock after a winter indoors, as it's very well protected. Continuously interesting up the steep groove, eventually reaching a ledge that leads right to a belay by blocks (with an ab point).


This is the obvious V groove on the left side of the central steep wall of the Grochan. Usual to abseil down after the first pitch - else carry on to the top via Brant in 3 or 4 meandering pitches.
