As told to me by a whiskey expert in Edinburgh, any scotch must start with a "teardrop of water" to unlock the complex flavors. Likewise, this was the first route on the cliff. Start up a small left-leaning ledge toward two small trees then up to the first bolt. Steep moves lead to easier ground and some loose rock. After the fifth bolt, continue up a clean low angle slab to a chain anchor just below the mossy loose stuff leading to the top platform.


A few feet right of Single Malt.


Bolts to a chain anchor.
