The first climb to the right of Trainspotting, and the furthest left of the bolted climbs. The bottom of the climb is technical, and at mid height there is a mid 11 crux, followed by the 12- move. One needs to be careful on the bottom part of the climb as the bolts are spaced a bit wide.

Descent Options:

Lower or rap from chains

4 out of 5 stars Great climb

Two cruxes - keep you thinking. The top 12 crux involved cool body position and a dynamic through to a crimper. I got this climb on my second try.
