That's absolutely brilliant, brought back great memories. Delighted to think I'm going back next month to have another go! Well done.

Scoobs,

Are the two scramble sections shown in the video the toughest part of the climb or was the camera out of use during the real serious stuff?

I'm trying to get a feel as to how difficult this route is but if the video shows the 'worst' bits then it looks OK to me.

Famous last words :lol:

Cheers,

Bonzo

No that's all the difficult bits on the video, I was more scared on the wee narrow bit before the summit :lol:
I usually carry 10-15m of the wide accessory cord just in case, it's not heavy and inexpensive if you have to leave it but it can come in really handy if needed :thumbup:

Must add more music to it since it's been muted :(
