A three-star mountaineering classic. Leave no gear at the base since you walk back from the summit. See intro notes opposite page. From the col, descend the other side leftwards (looking down) and follow a vague path down the heathery slope. The path zig-zags downhill further than you think, and takes a gully on the left near the base of the crag. Contour around the base of the crag to reach the start of the route. By the edge of a large gully. Head left down the ridge to the col and retrace your steps to the car.
