redsulike 1 Feb, 2010 AltLd β Second glorious day of the weekend. Shorter and very attractive walk in from Walna Scar car parking. Mixed route not difficult but gaining exposure with every step. keith led all but one pitch, I led and had to belay on a snow slope to bring keith up, crap spikes, was not happy, would rather have gone up to more secure stance unroped. Sitting a long time in exposed belays preys on my mind. Topped out right next to trig point, beautiful views in every direction, ate butties, descended. Lots of unequipped parties ascending snow steps, accident waiting to happen.
