Rockfax Description
1) From the starting col by the east peak, scramble easily along the crest and then down left past a tricky and exposed drop down over a hole in the ridge to a steeper and very exposed section.
2) Down-climb (or abseil) from a bolted abseil point to the continuation of the ridge. A further rocky section of ridge gains another abseil point.
3) A 20m abseil from here lands on some shelving, vegetated ledges near a large bay.
4) Scramble up a steep diagonal-weakness towards the crest of the ridge from where a long section of scrambling ends in a descent to a col with a distinct trio of vertical fins on its opposite side.
5) Walk up the slope next to the ridge-side fin and locate a line of closely spaced bolts on the smooth wall that lead up to its knife-edge top.
6) Climb the wall (4c) (or aid easily) to the knife-edge, then hand traverse this left (bolts) to a stance at a bolt.
7) Steep and slightly loose rock above (2+) gains another long section of ridge that once again ends in a steep descent to a broad col.
8) Ahead lies a long climb, past a number of false summits, to the true summit of the Bernia. Much of this final section is taken via the right flank of the ridge.
9) From the summit, descend the easy-angled ridge, past a short section with a hand-chain in place, to where the ridge starts to level out slightly and bends down to the right.
10) Keeping a close watch for the red dots, scramble left over the ridge and drop down and back left on rock and scree to a short scree-shoot.
11) Descend the scree-shoot and follow a path down to an old ruined fort. Continue along the path from the fort to a low wide col and take a good path that traverses the right side of a steep valley, around a spur to a track that leads easily back to the restaurant and parking. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
From the col to the west of the east summit, traverse the ridge from east to west. Fading red spots lead the way. The first section is exposed but bolted where it matters, ending with the only compulsory abseil. Other abseils can be easily avoided by scrambling down or around. Crux is a heavily bolted 4+. Probably best to take rock shoes just for this bit unless this is well within your grade. The second half of the ridge is mainly walking with a little bit of easy scrambling.

Hell of a day, eleven and a half hours car to car with a group of six. A lot of uphill walking to start with, followed by great scrambling with indescribable views, to say the least. The climbing is a nice route but very short. I led the first pitch and James led the second. The last half is everlasting hell on earth, an uphill prometheus-like slog where you think you've summited, and then you see another summit, and on that you see another, and then maybe another. And then the true summit? I lost count. One of my party says 'Welcome to mountaineering'. Highly recommended.

There is no need whatsoever to take anything other than quickdraws and some slings of assorted lengths. Nowhere will you need to place anything other than these, even if you're feeling exposed. The actual climbing bit is heavily bolted, the 2+ section immediately after is barely worth giving a grade to. I roped up it after "leading through" from the bolted section but found nowhere to place any gear and it was too easy to bother with anyway. 7hrs car to car. The red dots are a great help. The approach from the car park to the tunnel is 2 miles exactly. A great day out, with a pleasant, easy finish.

Spectacular day out. Enjoyed the Bernia Ridge so much - definitely worth doing. As others have said, the rockfax description is not particularly helpful. At the font turn right and follow the red dots until the cave. DO NOT GO THROUGH THE CAVE. Climb over the lump of rock to the left and begin looking for (sometimes very) faded red dots. Once you get to the start, just follow the red dots the entire way. We took nuts but did not need them, but worth taking a few in case you go off route or have members in your party that need some additional help. Used a 120 sling, 10 sport quick draws, cowstails, and a single half rope doubled up. Chains and ropes in a few places. Took us 6 hours 50 minutes car to car.

Mega day. First half was reasonably technical, second half was a grade 1 scramble and walking. It rained quite heavily while we were on the 4c bit, the stopped basically as soon as we were off it. Typical. Got lost on the approach because we went through the cave. Also Adam almost got eaten by a dog when we accidentally trespassed into someone's property. 6 hours 15 minutes car to car.

A fun day out. Moved together for most things, Tim lead the F4+ climb - one tricky move to start but then much easier ground. Unfortunately weather closed in on us as we started the climb so we moved quickly and felt like we didn't appreciate the setting. Got a bit confused on the last scramble to the Bernia summit so ended up on an early descent down a scree slope. We took a 70m rope (excessive and heavy) and placed 1 nut and several slings for confidence.

A busy Sunday but nobody on the ridge. 4hrs 15 car to car. Going through the tunnel before going up to the ridge (left of the tunnel!) was interesting. 1hr approach to the ridge. Easy scrambling past a smooth slide leads to bolts and a narrow half pipe type section, it’s easy enough to cross but don’t fall. The abseil is less than 20m and off new bolts. After that more steady scrambling. The chimney with some tat above is passed on the right. We had lunch in the fins (sheltered). The short climbing pitch isn’t as bad as people say. Solo’d it with rope on, you’re above flat ground and the start is the hardest. After that a bit more scrambling and then you reach the book. From here on out you need to stay right of the ridge to get to the summit. We got a bit lost and ended up on the left side and had to short rope up some steep loose ground. Good practice for me. On the way down the path doubles back on itself and is easy to miss in the scree. Nice morning out in the sun. Coffee in the restaurant afterwards. All we took (which was fine) was a harness, belay device, screwgate, sling, 4 quickdraws and a 40m rope

rachelpearce01 10/Dec/17 Solo

4 hours 15 car to car including going off route slightly and through the tunnel at the start. Didn't try to go too fast and stopped for lunch and to take pictures for lots of people but ran some of the downs. A fun little outing! Nice and quiet on the ridge, didn't see anyone. Great views both sides, and some interesting features along the way. Only used the rope for abseiling once, not really necessary for the other abseil. George practiced some mia short roping skills along the way too!

Fantastic day out. Lots of different mountaineering skills required. Did as a three so maybe we were a bit slower, but estimates of five hours or less seem optimistic unless some of the route is missed or safety wasn’t a primary consideration - even the 4a climb is very exposed and I wouldn’t want to do it solo. Took us eight or nine hours and we still had to bail just before the summit due to failing light. Some trad gear is advised and definitely a rope. There are more abseils than mentioned in Rockfax and downclimbing all of them would not be a sensible option.

Great ridge route leading Adele. Came off at the descent col as failed to spot red dots after the abseil down so missed the long ascent section but completed the best bits of the ridge. No real need for trad gear - slings and quick draws only used. Survived a meeting with some crazy locals - agreed to let them use my rope for the first abseil only for them to set up some sort of elaborate tyrolean traverse along the bolted ridge which one of them subsequently fell off, leaving him suspended in mid air!

Dave led the two roped pitches. 5 hours car to car. Got stuck for about an hour and a half behind two guided groups of 5 spaniards each with a full 65 litre rucksack, doing all kinds of fish impressions on the f4+ section...

7.5h car to car. One of the best days out ever. Rockfax has you taking more gear than necessary. Trad gear not required. We carried double 60m ropes but only used one. We had a moment of stunning efficiency during the 4+ section, rarely seen in SAKMC, with all 7 of us chained on to the rope to get up the pitch. Clear skies except for when we reached the summit :(

7.5 hours with 7 of us. Great views and route, unfortunately the peak was in cloud when we arrived, otherwise brilliant romp.

Good long walk, nothing hard or technical apart from one pictch grade 4 fully bolted and very polish at the start of it. A couple of abseils but one rope of 50 is enough. Very enjoyable

3 hours 36 minutes from car to car including the far summit where you start. It will go in under 3 hours and i am interested in what Spanish local has the fastest time?

Great day out, ignore the UKC description... you definitely don't need to be climbing anywhere near 6b to enjoy this. Short rope and some quickdraws needed for the 4+ section though. great views.

alooker 22/Dec/13 -

Great day out to give the arms a rest. 6b comment in the description is bizarre, no way. Abseils are mostly avoidable, longest would be fine on a 50. 4+ crux has more bolts than Frankenstein

went from east to west. the first bit is by far the best so savour it. once you have done the 4+ pitch its pretty much walking and easy scrambling from then on. 7.5 hours car to car

Started the day out on Bernia ridge early but did not proceed as quickly as anticipated. Bailed off just before the fins in view of deteriorating weather and limited daylight.

Brilliant, even if we did start at the end and do half of it in the wrong direction! The better half (1st half) is not possible in the wrong direction so we walked round and through the hole in the ridge!

What a great ridge, it goes on and on and on, with firm sections with grippy rock, loose sections, an exciting abseil and well protected crux. Some rock climbing ability needed even if it is graded 3S
