Description 

Make a difficult start up a right trending crack / flake into a good niche. From the niche make a long reach up to the left to a good hold.

From the good hold make difficult crimpy moves straight up, until possible to move right to a good pinch (crux). Peg runner in Squirm Direct. From here move left and up to the bottom of the diagonal crack. From the base of the crack move up the prow until moves right allow a groove to be reached.

Finish up the groove of Stand Clear.

Location 

Located on the right side of the steep central wall.

Protection 

Quickdraws. Cams can be helpful for the original finish

This climb has been superseded by its more recent neighbor's, but in its day it was one of the hardest climbs in Scotland.

Before the more recent sport bolts were placed (late 80s) a lead meant hooking some very fragile old bolts for protection, and provided quite the experience.
