Popped out to the Scalp this evening to have another play on Primer. Conditions ended up being a bit worse than I’d hoped, so I soon gave up and wandered up the hill for a look at Eyrie (6C).

I’d seen this problem been done in the video below, so all I knew was that it looked hard, and TALL!

With only one mat, I thought I’d just play on the starting moves for a while before heading home, but I quickly found myself half way up the arete, trying to decided if it was worth the risk. :-D After a few seconds of hesitation, I quested onwards, and topped out. Really classic problem, and a good start to the weekend.
