Spent a lot of time checking numerous variations (used descending of Nor Nor Gully), including Ogwen CC guide/GS version which goes direct on upper ridge (exposed). Steve's route was the best though, and more in keeping with top end scrambling. Enjoyed the through route through the cleft after the tricky slab and surmounting the pinnacle to then step back across the cleft. An excellent scramble.

It was a fantastic sunny dry day so we did this rather than the North ridge. Stayed on the buttress all the way up instead of escaping into the gully as the Ashton guidebook suggests. Only got the rope out for one steep slab which we took on the right hand side overlooking a decent sized drop. Met the hoards on the North ridge and descended by South ridge and Heather Terrace. Rock was lovely all the way up, solid, warm and unpolished unlike the North ridge.

Guided students Ross & Chris and descended north ridge. Very warm and sunny for most part. Wet on final part of descent as clouds came down.

long day out and minutes from missing my train back to london so I can work monday morning. Climbing good, fairly certain some pitches much harder than scramble grade gives.
