Summary:
Straightforward and enjoyable ridge walk with no scrambling difficulties. Hard work done in first hour of ascent. Only two people met on first summit, heading westwards. Great views throughout with amazing cloud formations, though never quite fully inverted. Little wind but still fresh. Descent pathless and not too wet. Walk back along A87 took 1 hour. Fine spring day.
