Logged Descriptions  (logged by 5 users)ByDate of Ascent
Parked at Dalbeag and then followed cliff edge to short steep loose gulley to beach, LW-1. beach appeared quite dry. Crossed short tidal zone to centre of south ie landward side of island, up easy block to sloping slabs. Crux is 4m high, awkward, slightly overhanging, slightly loose, blocky chimney (comfort rope used; best when rock dry) to more slabs then steeply up grass and loose rock to ridge, keeping a rock rib on your left. Turn L(W), then c100m walk SW up narrow, slightly airy grassy rib to wide, well vegetated summit ramp. HP at SW end of island, with steep drop one side.Denise 07/07/2021
Easy descent down short gully to boulder beach, dry crossing to island (LW-1). 4m YDS3 up chimney with some wobbly rocks to gain slabs and vegetated rib guarded by Fulmar. Up rib keeping to E (RHS) to gain E ridge proper. Airy E ridge to summit. The upper section of the E ridge is not held up by much on its N side!RichardM07/07/2021
As per Jon and Dave, good info and GR for descent point, thanks. Easy crossing 30mins before low water (neap tide). A little slippery after earlier shower, chimney a little slopy and insecure, I descended via the edge 2m to NE, sketchy footholds but juggy handholdsRHW04/07/2021
From end of the road at Dalbeg. Descended fragile and unstable cliff opposite the stack (NB 2345 4708) to dry rocky foreshore approx 1hr before low tide. Acsent of the stack a reasonably straight forward scramble - easy chimney then steep grassy slope to narrow grassy ridge to summit.jonglew17/09/2019
Descent to shoreline and base of the stack follows a right trending (facing out) groove/fault line on poor rock. This is to the east of a more obvious but steeper gully.Dave McG17/09/2019
