More Angus glens mixed

After a holiday on Cuba Simon and I went to a new corrie (for me) in the Angus glens. We started early and a nasty Northerly was blowing.
 It took a long time to the bottom of our buttress and I led the first, easier, turfy pitch with limited gear to a ramp. Above the climb proper starts. Here Simon begins the second pitch...
 ... and here he has reached the crux, a deceptively steep, short corner. 
 There was a lot of snow around but almost all turf was in good condition. 
 At the end of he ramp Simon had to swing over a rib into another groove which again was steeper than it looked from below. 
 Above some easy climbing in markedly improved weather...
 ... to a tricky but well protected corner which was a special, highly enjoyable gift!
 (Photo SR) V,6 we thought with some great technical problems linked by turfy ramps. I was missing the trees though!

Good question! I leave that to those who discovered this gem!
