DescriptionSlanting left, wider route that branches out left from the start of Cardhu Crack and blazes its own less fun trail. When I did it last week it was quite wet inside the crack, with thriving bryophyte ecosystems deep within. Climb Cardhu instead if it's an option.
Oh, and watch the ends of your rope when you lower as the route's pretty long (shorter than Cardhu, but the ground below the anchors of Dirty Dickey is lower than it is under Cardhu). You might want to lower off to the right, even with a 70m.
LocationStart as for Cardhu, climber's right of the crag. Branch left to the obvious wide crack line after three or four meters.
ProtectionIt gets wide, but you don't need wide gear because when it's wide it's kind of flary and unprotectable anyways. I have an inkling that if you were to take up a nut tool and scrape away at the non-vascular plant life you'd be able to place some bomber thin gear (blue/purple metolius?) in the back of the wide. Try it. Worst comes to worst you cleaned out the crack and performed a public service to all.
You're looking at a rack ranging from fingers to hands. There's bolts and rap rings at the top
