RPT. Lugged rope and small rack all the way up in case of ice; it never left the bag. Wintery, but still in Grade 2 scrambling condition - just. Beautiful day in the hills.

Loved the exposed traverse left, requires faith at grade 2, but the holds come and it's a real highlight.

Hard to tell if I followed the route directly, avoided one hard section with a rightward leaning groove. Fun scrambling anyway and interesting top out to the tourist train!

Rib to the right deteriorates somewhat near the top so I moved over to this just after the buttress becomes more prominent.

Took a while to realise that Ashton's 'fine rock platform' required no noticeable 'escape rightwards over blocks'. Few 'pinnacles' seen but followed left a series of runnels eventually leading to a 'capped chimney' so think I stayed on route! The only solid grade 3 appeared to be the '5m crack in the slab' variant, launching off a pinnacle over a drop.
