/ Lake District scrambles
What would be a good step up to do similar ridges in the Lake District that are either higher level grade I or easy grade II?
Airy exposed ridges that include a summit at some point along the route would be good abd that arw good to do in dry, wet and winter (when it arrives).
Climbers' traverse and Sphinx Ridge on the Napes is my recommendation. Threading the Needle would be an optional way to spice things up a little.
Sour milk Gill and Rabbit's Trod onto summit of Grey Crag from Seathwaite is an easy grade 2 that leads to a summit, or Cam Crag ridge from Langstrath and then over to Intake Ridge in Combe Gill with a walk over to Glaramara to finish off is a great day out at 2.
But as suugested above Sphinx ridge and threading the needle is probably the best day out in the lakes at grade 2.
Intake Ridge a 2??????? (and OP asked for "easy 2". Didn't seem that way to me
This will probably be the best £5 you will ever spend
Jack's Rake in the Langdales?
I have the books....I just wanted opinions
Not if you miss the glaciated slab and the top pitch out, which in my opinion still makes a good scramble.
Intake Ridge is easier than Pinnacle Ridge imo. (depending if you take on any of the routes on the Glaciated Slab but then they make the route a diff, but the scramble just takes in the top of the slab with exposure but easy moves at around grade 2)
If you want proper airy exposed scrambling ridges you'd be better heading to Scotland where there are so many classic ridges that would fit the bill.
I am sure he is well aware of that as most are, he was heading to the Lakes and was asking about other scrambles in the Lakes therefore it would be good to give him advise based on what he was asking for rather than stating the bleeding obvious. I also live in the Lakes and have done all above mentioned, does this not mean anyone can try other less obvious lines? or do we have to head to Scotland after doing the main ones?
As others have already said, you've done the best 'proper' ridges. There's good scrambling on Hall's Fell Ridge, Harrison Stickle, Bow Fell (just to the right of the path) if you pick the best lines but they're not defined ridges. Unless you head to Wales (N Ridge Tryfan is great) I think Jack's Rake would be the next step. Not a ridge, but exposed and a great line leading to the summit
Crinkle Gill followed by Pinnacle Rib on Bowfell Links is a top end grade 1 and leads to the summit of Bowfell, lot's to link up at grade 2 over the Langdale Pikes too as saisd above, a route on Tarn Crag is grade 2 can't think of the name then over Jack's Rake (top end grade 1) or East Ridge of Harrison Stickle (Grade 2) and a run down the scree shout next to Pike 'o' Stickle is always a fun day out in any conditions.
