Exposed scrambling on a pinnacled introductory ridge followed by tedious walking up open slopes of heather and grass. A discontinuous series of rock aretes on the upper face leads with increasing difficulty to the summit slopes.

Ticklists: Scrambles in Snowdonia - Steve Ashton, North Wales Scrambles - Garry Smith (New White Book).

Evening at sunset.

Tried to go over the top of the first pinnacle, but couldn't see a way down for me - so had a wobbly down climb to do. Porcupine ridge was good fun and reasonably tough - probably to top end of what I would want to do solo.

Re-checked. Sampled some of the VDif approach climb too. Super re-checked the 'complex' (very) but wonderful, adventurous and worth the epic connection 'Porcupine Ridge' - in fairly strong winds but glorious evening light.

Superb, both of us checked crossing second pinnacle on both sides. Variations checked. Really enjoyed.

Took hard corner climb on right side of ridge in error at beginning - probably closer to easier climbing grades. Pinnacle section and Porcupine Ridge great fun but hard in windy conditions.

Spicy as ever; the committing upper section (porcupine ridge) is truly top end of the grades (if not more of a diff climb...)

First Grade 2 scramble, dad fighting flies in the gully below. Seriously scary stuff.
