Begins on the buttress right of the Idwal Staircase. The scrambling starts by the stream the path crosses. Climb up a heather and rock runnel on the buttress for some distance until you reach a gully. Walk up this for a couple of metres to come out above the buttress. Head right and climb (or bypass) a small free-standing buttress then walk up to the grass couloir descending from Seniors' Ridge. High above is a quartz band; the scramble crosses this. Scramble up on rock to the right of the couloir (great holds) then trend right to gain the sloping quartz ledge. From here scramble leftwards (choice of line) to reach Seniors' Ridge.

Another great day out. Very windy, went slightly off route, again, and ended up climbing a very wet, green gully (recurring theme!).
