 North Ridge, 16 16 0m
0

A mid-length rock ridge offering mediocre rock but fine views and position. A mix of scrambling and rope work, with two proper rockclimbing pitchs to grade 16 (turn roof on the first steeper wall via holds on the right, and take the second crack from the right/ridge on the second steep wall, then finish up and left to a block). Old spliced abseil cord indicates previous passages taken along this ridge- up and down? A fascinating history. Easiest descent is either by West face weaknesses, or NE face to E ridge (3x 60m abseils plus scrambling).

 North Couloir 1000m

From the head of the Roaring Burn, climb slabs below the big cliffs to the flat part of the west ridge. Sidle easy snowgrass slopes on the northern side of the mountain until it’s possible to gain a couloir leading directly to the summit ridge.
