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

βeta: The face to the left of Sharp Edge is worth a look. Only Grade I/II but more complex route finding than a I/II gully and I thought it felt quite Alpine.

smoreda 10 Feb - Just enough to call it a winter ascent; we were certainly expecting more snow. Wait for the next winter cycle if you want to do it.
