hidden in the picture.) ("the UK's and premier mountaineering route"; I'm now wondering what 'premier' might actually mean here. Jaggiest?)

'Most marketed' or 'most guided' would be my cynical guesses.

No need for the cynicism. Is there anything even remotely comparable elswhere in the UK? Rhum and Arran have fine ridges but not on the same scale and on the mainland only the classic Nevis ridges come close and they only afford a view of an industrial estate ;-) as well as not being a continuous traverse from summit to summit.

UK's longest scramble, or longest stretch where your feet stay on rock and you never go below 2000', most technical munros... there are a few possibilities.

All fine points, none of which I'd argue against. My understanding of 'premier' is similar to the dictionary one: 'first in importance, order, or position; leading', none of which I think quite fits a ridge traverse. Best-est, most awesomest, most highly regarded, most demanding, most-sustainedly-gnarl, most all-of-the-stuff-you-all-mentioned-above. Premier means nothing to me here; I'd leave that one for double-glazing companies, taxi firms and travel agents, not mountains. Sorry for the digression. What time is the talk?
