A sociable team of five up the Dolmen Ridge today on our Advanced Scrambling Course. With me, Julia, Thien, Maria and Laurie to fit on the ledges we climbed the route in ‘the old fashioned way’. That is to say that we climbed the line as described in Steve Ashton’s scrambling guide book rather than the straightened but slightly harder line given in Gary Smith’s newer book. It was all good fun on a clear but cold day and we added some extra scrambling by descending via Bristly Ridge.
