straightforward scrambling, variable at will until the ridge narrows to a rock tower barring passage to the summit. Passing this briefly reaches grade 3 and is quite exposed. It also has to be reversed on descent.

Ian Archer 1 Jul, 2018 Solo O/S Was originally going to do one the climbs, too cold for me so went up a gully to meet the main ridge just before the 'bad step' Full transverse on the ridge, lots of scrambling at will. Sunny day but clouds rolled in as we were going down. First use of my solar shower when I got down.
