|Drove to Fitful Head, cliff path to Siggar Ness. Steep and precarious scramble down mainly grassy slope to col at approx 50m elevation. Then even more precarious scramble across connecting ridge and up onto the most westerly point of Siggar Ness. Flat grassy top but ascent and descent not for the faint-hearted.||jonglew||14/06/2019|
|Hard! Drove up to Fitful Head, walked clifftop to Siggar Ness, very steep descent on good firm grass, R on sheep trod to N side of wide gully, down rocky spur to saddle, pass S side of gendarmes with some delicate exposed scrambling, fulmars, to W saddle, steep ascent mixed grass and rock, initially R then L to dip in ridge just S of airy grassy summit, superb! Descended initially S on sheep trod with great view of Little Hallitie, back R with mauvais pas to cross or scramble below, easily to W saddle then down gully tricky in places, almost to sea level, steep grassy ascent to rejoin our packs. Relieved and pleased with ourselves! [jonglew GPSd this one]||RHW||14/06/2019|
