Despite the rain and high winds this was a quality scramble with some great positions and fun crux on the narrow rib... Only downside is that there is a path either side for most of the route.

W/ A R S E , superb route not grade 3 all the way just in beginning I would say with a kool exposed start , but wonderful route and great fun even in drizzly mist and low cloud , best group day out so far.

Grade 2 - and relatively easy at that. Only one exposed bit, and generally really fun!

In descent on a misty and drizzly day after ascending via Little and North Gully. Rock was sound and grippy except for the bottom of Bastow Gully which was slippery and loose. Very enjoyable, didn't feel too serious.

Fluid and flowing way to end a prolific day. It was a lot better than I expected, there's a lovely narrow rib on it, which was a delight.

Done as intro to grade 3 with noticeable grade 3 edging on slabs right to Ashton's 'upper of two breaks' and blank kerb-like arete soon after his 'when practical regain the left-hand rib' (overcome by pull on narrow edge with foot on flake left high on gully sidewall). Followed Ashton's description throughout rather than the (mainly avoiding) path.
