As per Highland Scrambles North. Great route on grippy sandstone with plenty of variation possible in a superb situation, though the walk in does take a while.

Rather than follow instructions in the book, I'd suggest the following: right on the crest of the watershed, at the base of the ridge, there's a large detached block. Above and to the right of this is a prominent left-slanting grassy gully. Climb a few metres up this then traverse right onto the adjacent rib via a ledge. That's a better way of getting established on it than the slimy right side of the same rib.
