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

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.

great route with lots of interest. Only difficult bit was the descent of the Bad Step. One or two exposed sections

Flinticus 10/Jun/15 Solo

Bright, sunny day. A Wednesday and no-one else on the ridge (one couple down by the bealach). Saw a weasel (possibly a stoat)!

colin fagan 21/Mar/15 Solo

Hopeing for more snow on the ridge but it was stripped bare apart from the odd icy step. Did the Abseil off the bad step although the path on the left looked ok and clear of snow. Great weather day with stunning views.

Nice ridge, not very exposed and easy to avoid any scrambling if you just wanted a walk. Following the crest gives some pleasant scrambling though!
