Older guide book suggests crossing over at difficult bit. This makes it much harder. I returned to left side as per later guide book. Froggy. By far the hardest Diff ive climbed but this might have been the above messing about.

In approach shoes, and a bit sketchy since some turd had decided to throw their relatives ashes over the cliff, covering every hold in a layer of human remains. Grim.
