Didn’t have a map and intended doing the circular walk but started on the wrong trail almost immediately. Used goat tracks and navigated by instinct with only the odd footprint and tiny cairn on the “trails” to keep me motivated. After walking north and east for a couple of kilometres I found myself at the foot of a scree filled gully. There looked like there’d been traffic up there previously so I set off up. The gulley was about 25-30 degrees and the longest, most arduous “walking” (read desperate scree scrambling” I’ve ever done. Seeing the desiccated, sun bleached leg of a dead goat confirmed my suspicions that this approach was for idiots only. Finally got to the summit ridge where at least I could sit down and eat my lunch. Everything felt better with a full stomach and I soon forgot about the possible worst two hours of my life. The walk down was a little prettier and relaxing. This was supposed to be a rest day from climbing and I ended up more knackered than if I’d done ten routes!

Scrambled up the obvious scree-filled gully to the saddle. Soloed some easy rock to the south summit.

excellent route, 3 excellent pitches i lead, start earlyish in winter, we absieled down the right gulley have a good luck round for the chain below the top bolts,( in the gap) then ab down to tat thread on a ledge, then straight down into gulley, this is a way off alternative way off instead of abbing off down a line of route on the actual face, we only done this because we didnt know the face that well,
