    Traversed exposed sections along cliffs and finally reached the top for mind-blowing Grampian panoramas. Navigation wasn’t easy, especially after Wildman’s Cave. Overall, super rewarding but definitely for experienced hikers with a good head for heights. Just be prepared to take your time as much of the last section is off-trail and quite overgrown.
