UKC

This fine ridge, one of the best in Scotland outside Skye, gives a splendid outing. Much variation is possible and this is the grade for the easiest line traversing from south to north.

βeta: Great day out, found the rusted peg for the ab and backed it up with a thread. A trip up and over goatfel to finish ?

βeta: South to North. Couldn't find fixed tat at the diving board- just a low spike with a couple of loose rocks on top near the rust peg! Guidebooks were confusing though. Went back to the step across and down climbed a nasty gravely gully to get past the mauvais pas abseil - strong east wind affected us as well.

βeta: Tat was present on the peg and low spike for the abseil so unsure why others didn't find it

βeta: Originally though the airy stride was the diving board which lead to a whole bunch of confusion. The correct order is downward facing slabs to a wide groove, airy stride between two stone planks, scramble on to the ridge ahead, walk 20m or so and you are on the diving board. There should be an old peg and a large flake with ab tat on it.
