It does make for a very confusing coda to the route description though, making it sound like several people lead it then Dave Warbuton soloed it! Not quite as confusing as the use of the word ‘reflexing’ though.

Ha I thought that. Makes no sense whatsoever.

I thought it was fairly common for climber + belayer to get credited? This just seems like an extension of that. Probably made more sense back in the day when if the leader fell off there's a reasonable chance you'd both die, or at least get some horrible bruises from the waist belay which has gotta deserve some credit  :lol:

Nice! Wonder if Dave was a bit annoyed not to get the FA on this, probably thought an 8b+ project in Invernesshire was quite safe!

Equally it's quite nice for it to be significant enough to attract international attention, get a likely solid grade and then DMac to repeat it.

In the early Middle Ages Edinburgh was part of Northumbria, so its inhabitants were Angles (English) rather than British, Gaels or Picts. Though I’ve always assumed Will was another from the great clan of Italian-Scots.
