I think I know where you were stopped in your tracks. After leaving the stile from the PYG track, you follow a pretty good path until your way is blocked by what seems like an impenetrable cliff. There are paths tracking left and right. The way is straight up the middle, up a steep polished slab. You will see crampon scratches on the rocks here. The holds are good though, and once past this point, the way is obvious. There are a couple more steep steps, then the east ridge narrows as you reach the top. From here, the way is pretty obvious as well, straight along the narrow ridge, with the N Ridge dropping away to your right hand side.
Hia, I'm based in South Glos and am looking for like minded people to hit the hills with, local and further afield. I have 20+ years of experience of walking the British hills, from Dartmoor to Scotland, alpine walking experience and also hold my ML summer award.
I am 39, female, and good company!! Have transport, and don't work weekends.
Get in touch if you want to meet up for a wander sometime, maybe we could get a group together for trips and such like.
I have decided to walk the Haute Route from Chamonix to Zermatt in sept. I am working towards gaining experience to do my IML qualification. I am wondering if there is anyone on here who fancies doing the walk with me. I have been walking/climbing in the Alps for the last 10 years, and have a keen interest in the environment. I will be travelling to Chamonix on the 28th of August and will be there for 4 weeks, so am flexible with dates. The walk will take approx 14 days, with an easy train journey back from Zermatt. I am hoping to make the trip as cheap as possible by wild camping as much as possible.
So, if anyone on here wants to do this spectacular walk, please get in touch via PM.
