[The view on the scramble to the summit, 2 kb]506m, 4 pitches. A continuation to the top is long and devious - stick to the description! Start above the end of the main route. Whether it is worth the extra effort depends on how tired you are! 1) 175m. Scramble up the broken ridge to a stance below the below the pinnacles that block the way. 2) 2, 50m. Scramble along the ridge then follow ledges that lead across the face on the left to a stance in a col. 2a) 3, 50m. The col can also be reached by following the ridge till it steepens, step right and climb to the top of the pinnacle. (4). Abseiling from a spike into the gully. 3) 4, 26m. From the col climb the wall behind the huge chockstone for 5m then aim left to the blunt arete to find a stance and thread belays. 4) 4, 30m. Choose any line (all much the same grade) to the top of the climbing. From here a final 175 m of scrambling gains the notch at the top of the mountain. © ROCKFAX

AMAZING. why would you not do this? OK, maybe for those without alpine experience it is a bit intimidating and we kept second guessing which way we should be going but wow, going over the pinnacles was excellent fun. Didn't find the climbing any harder than on Espolon. Descent certainly proved the interesting bit as we came down from the notch and took a fair bit of time to find the abseil station. But after that it was easy route finding back to the car.

Easy to get lost on here but I think we managed it. I can't see any easier way. At the top, DON'T follow the tracks as we did. Look for the red dots and follow these. The tracks go nowhere and are made by goats, who dont know where they are going. It looks improbable to follow the dots, but have faith.
