New E4 on Sgurr Sgumain in Skye

Iris 40m E4 5c ***. Tim Miller. 2 Jul 2021.
This brilliant and sustained route climbs the steep wall above Loch Lagan, by linking together corner and crack features. Unfortunately it suffers from seepage, but can still be climbable when mostly dry. Start at a big wobbly block. Climb a technical wall until it is possible to swing left into the right of the two left facing corners. Climb the corner and wall above then follow a wide crack going up to the left. At the end of this move back right across a wet patch to follow another leftwards trending crack that leads to the base of the hanging corner at the top centre of the wall. Climb this to easier ground up and right.
