The short summit ridge from the top of the Whale Stream route is pinnacled with the 300 metres just before the summit being made up of a number of tors that have to be traversed which are exposed and very loose in places. I wonder if this summit ridge is a victim of increasing storms and erosion as it is not the walk in the park that some have written in years past. ...at least without any snow on it.
