We're planning to have at go at this in August. Does anyone have any info on previous lines? I know the winter girdle featured in a couple of journals over the years, but have never seen anything about the summer route except the tantalising few words in the SMC guidebook.
I know it will be an exploratory undertaking - not expected move by move but any hints appreciated! Thanks.
I did find this excellent high res photo to help planning:

Maybe email Simon Richardson? (scottishwinter.com)

Thanks, maybe I'll go straight to the authority... anyway judging by the response we won't find a lot of polish to show us the way! I'll start my planning from the eastern traverse ledge and work from there.

The 2002 SMC guide has more than 'a few words' see P 213-215.

The funny thing is, you're right. I must have been thinking of a different guidebook. Thanks..
