Leopold, Steall Hut
April 24, 2021, 07:36:28 pm
Hi, first post here. Had a quick go on Leopold today. Going back tomorrow. Does anyone have beta for kneebar and crux. Didn't find a good sequence with nice clipping positions.

Thanks.

There aren't a lot of Scottish sport climbers on here tbh.

I'll ask around and see if anyone knows.

Had a few sessions on it now. Here is beta up to the end of the crux. Hopefully it will help someone out:

Yes. There is another clip of Dave on EpicTV too (https://youtu.be/gLfNPKR2yuE?t=128) but both of these cut out the kneebar and majority of the crux section. So hopefully my clip will come in handy the next time someone is searching for beta.

Did you get it done in the end? Looked pretty smooth up to coming off. Would be up for getting acquainted with that one, give me a shout if you want to go for a session some point. Are you Fort William based?

No, I need to go back and finish it off. I'll send you a message. I'm based in Kincraig. Keen for several of the other routes too. There is a good handful of people going atm.

Just got on this for the first time today - man that's burly!  Didn't get the crux, but figured out most of the rest of it. I was struggling to get out of the knee bar low down and then "release" into the next section.
