What an excellent route! Couple of abseils thrown in just to give it that proper alpine feel. We soloed up to the first abseil (first pinnacle) and then kept the rope on but moved together the majority of the way. The climbing on the last pinnacle is probably the best. There is tat for the abseils currently in place

Only managed half the route skirting under Pinnacle 3 on the north side and into Coire Riabhach where we nabbed a short ice smear 10m perhaps of grade IV ice

Start of an attempt of the full traverse. Snow a bit soft lower down but an amazing coverage of good neve for the pinnacles, Grade III.

Fantastic. Soft snow but that only added to the atmosphere.

A superb alpine ridge traverse, every bit as good (but different in style) to Tower Ridge on the Ben.
