W-E. Didn't see a soul on the ridge. Amazing position, with some lovely scrambling on the pinnacles. Great exposed arete at the E end.

Took Dan Bailey's route up the Eastern end which is good fun. Took all the pinnacles direct for maximum fun. Not the clearest of days but the clag did lift at times giving stunning views.

From west to east in the clouds with significant winds. Really nice scrambling even though we got a bit lost finding the descent! Practised short-roping for the last easy bit.
