850m. The shorter and slightly easier sibling of Striding Edge. Often in condition. Can be combined with Striding Edge for an excellent alpine style expedition.

smoreda 17 Mar - In descent, entrance from the plateau snow was rock hard, frozen solid - lots of fun. By 4 pm it started to rain, temps had gone significantly up. As I was leaving the Lakes snow line had clearly receded at least 100 m.
