Climbing up the quartz dikes on Springbank 5.10a
Climb up the slabby wall on nobs and dike. The technical crux is at 2/3 height. Continue on up the wall until a move left then back right brings you below hanging flake.
The finishing moves up and over the flake are classic.
Located at the right side of the crag just right of the obvious green corner of Balvenie.
8 bolts, Rappel bolt and chain anchor

Although the guidebook lists this as having 8 bolts there's only 7. It starts via a long right-slanting ramp or directly (better) although both starts have little to no gear. The climb itself is super fun as you stem, pinch and finesse your way up dikes (crux at 5th bolt) to a great finish up a huge flake (tug gently at the start).
