Easy to spot, and it earns its name. Stand below it and be drawn to the single feature, starting as an off-width and finishing as a big open slit at the top. Pitch 1 is a scramble up to the start of the crack proper. Pitches 2 and 3 take you to the top of the slit, and pitch 4 is a scramble left and up a ramp to a small wall. The belay on pitch 2 is only big enough for 1 climber so somebody's a$$ is gonna hang over the drop

4 out of 5 stars Ascent Note

Nearly ran away from this one. Its quite intimidating from below, but one of the greatest scottish mountain days I ever had.
