    Mike and I repeated some routes on the Sea Walls at Picts Ness on Monday and have regrade two of these. Alamootie is HVS 4c as the bottom section is virtually unprotectable and for Rain-gös we climbed an easier finish.


    Alamootie HVS 4c ** 25m
    Start at the bottom of the chimney groove. Climb up and rightwards on flakes of a break at 6m. Climb the flake above to a ledge and leftwards to a v-groove. Pull through this and finish leftwards. Direct Finish HVS 5a The right facing corner and wall directly above the wall above the v-groove.

    Rain-gös HVS 5a ** 25m
    From a platform step across a narrow slot and climb the right crack to a break at half height. Climb the crack above with difficulty onto a ledge on the right and then flakes out to the right to finish. Alternative finish: 5b. From the ledge climb the crack above pulling rightwards at the top to finish.
