Description

The first free ascent of Rat Race was a break trough in Scottish free climbing and is still a hard tick to onsight.

1. Climb up the pod like crack on the left of the steep central wall. Climb the crack above to a difficult section exiting the niche at 2/3 height. From the niche continue up the crack to the hanging belay.

2. Make hard moves of the stance and gain the right trending groove. When possible pull left through the roof on huge holds for spectacular moves. Continue on up the short wall above to the top.

Location

Left edge of the steep central wall.

Protection

Trad Gear, 3 fixed pins.
