straightforward scrambling, variable at will until the ridge narrows to a rock tower barring passage to the summit. Passing this briefly reaches grade 3 and is quite exposed. It also has to be reversed on descent.

In complete clag. Ended up on some fairly steep ground at one point which was tricky to reverse. Whole traverse was superb scrambling. Final tower presented no probs. Must go back for a view.

Bit cloudy so we only got fleeting views of the landscape. Great traverse! We took the final crux via the tower, which was not as bad as it looked!

Fabulous scrambling along the ridge, but bashed my knee going up the crux to the summit, so came back down the easier way (a wee ramp on the south side of the gully; would be easier going up that way too) Had to pack in the scrambling for the day as knee was too sore so headed back along trying to follow the path to the north, but that was actually harder than going over the top!!

Wasn't quite dark enough yet so we thought a quick spin along the ridge would be a nice end to the day, quite technical scrambling if you stick to the ridge, amazing views...

No rain, cloudy, but managed to get good views from the summit in the end. Excellent scrambling to be had all over the place - tricky section just before western summit difficult to reverse on descent but not as bad as it looks.

backed of the final tricky section before the summit, did not fancy having to reverse it. To my shame, elite mountaineer Jeremy did get there. Still, the stunning views north to Suilven went some way to make up for me bottling it...
