Fantastic grade 2 scramble if you keep to the crest but you can escape round most obstacles on the path below it.

ron1954 5 Jul - Guided by Dave Buckett Highland Mountain Co. Low cloud, drizzle. Nice scrambling, especially the short slab sections at various points along the route. Always felt solid and secure. To keep things moving along in the increasingly miserable weather, we opted to bypass the down climb.

beds74 20 Sep, 2015 Solo Loved it! Quite possibly in my top 5 best UK ridge scrambles. (Done most/all of the classics) I measured nearly 250m of quality stop start scrambling (if you stick to ridge that is) Lot's of opportunity to bail if you want. As an instructor point of view with punters, this would be a perfect scramble for confident people, text book blocks/belays abound!! Go do it.
