It is a really good walk and a fairly easy one. The landslip is at the north top and only a short walk along the ridge. No mention of it on the W/H route but SMC book says to avoid especially in snowAnnieMacD wrote:Looks like a great walk. Pity you didn't get some sunshine. Where was the landslip relative to your route?
