Rockfax Description
The best traverse is to go up Sharp Edge and down Halls Fell although each ridge can be ascended in their own right. The grade given is for staying close to the crest of each ridge in most cases difficulties can be avoided. © Rockfax

Good day out, Ground conditions not great, mostly scrambled without points apart from the gully section after the sketchy slippery slab bit (Joe and I went around to the left). Up Sharp Edge, down Halls Fell ~5 hours total

Not convinced about this as a winter ascent as didn't need or use axe or crampons all day! Snow and ice on the route and most people were using kit so logged as winter anyway...

Lovely outing. Stayed on the crest most of the way. Wish I'd comeup the good snow on the north flank.

Wesley Orvis 09/Nov/13 Solo

some good snow cover for early November fresh snow falling most of the day

John HW 06/Apr/13 Solo

A cold night meant the snow was all frozen in place. The weather was clear blue skies and no wind. Left Linton on Ouse at 0630 and I arrived back home at 1430.

Exit chimney bowl of ice so went up left hand slabs instead - much more fun!

Perfect weather conditions, which made the traverse relatively straight-forward almost disappointingly so, if it weren't for the glorious weather and scenery. Didn't bother with crampons in the end.
