Neil Adams and Andy Inglis added a new line on Stob Coire nan Lochan in Glen Coe on March 16.
“Moonshine takes the obvious slim corner to the left of the top pitch of Moonshadow,” Neil explained. “To get to it, we started up Twisting Gully RH, then continued up another groove just right of the easy ground on Moonshadow (although this was also pretty straight-forward – you’d be as well just going up Moonshadow). There’s then a steep 30m pitch up the groove to the top of the buttress.
It’s probably VI,7 overall – quite sustained tech 7, but never quite reaching tech 8, and not long enough difficulties to justify more than VI overall. Worth at least a star, probably 2, and a good option if the lower buttresses are stripped (as they were last Saturday).”
