South-East Ridge M
[South Peak of The Cobbler, 2 kb]Lower two-thirds mostly walking. Best started from the base of the buttress proper (some rock moves), or easy grass ledges round to the left. Then fun but avoidable moves over large boulders at a minor col. Up to a short grade 3 rock step, and walk to base of the obvious crux wall, climbed by a quality, exposed crack and ledges. Finish with airy grass ledge walking, with an optional short wall.

Definitely took more difficult route (hence, more fun!) as two first pitches were lead instead of being scrambled (stayed on the left from the easiest scramble path, just right to the arete). Made it in 3 pitches and scrambled to the top unroped after the crux.

Quite a bit of grass in places but rock sections are lovely. Abseil off the top too.

In big boots (needed for the grass!). Great views and exposure, fantastic weather for it! Repeated in descent.

Nice climbing in places but quite a lot of walking on grass. As part of the Cobbler traverse as per Scotland's Mountain Ridges.

Great climb although we had rubbish weather.
Vanessa Simmons - 25/Jun/14 with Andy M

As part of full S & C Peak Traverse, topping out at 9pm. Fabulous after 2 weeks of no rain - all that grass surely grotty in normal conditions. Crux wall a good hard scramble, no easier or harder in ascent than the descent off down Original Route. Thanks Robin for moral support,
