Ably assisted by guide Tim Hamlet (Hamlet Mountaineering) - £260 - for a full day, although I was in a rush, so just did the Graham in 2.5 hrs. Just 4 moves up the Guardian. Exposed one side only.carole engel04/09/2023

Today I did it! With the help of Mountain Guide Tim Hamlet, I negotiated the bad step, not very elegantly, but successfully. It feels like winning a Gold Medal. Thanks, Tim.IanHHill09/09/2021
Treacherous weather reached the peak apart from the last scramble to the top (apparently toughest in the uk) looked more of a rock climb than a scramble . Marilyn no. 51The-Z-Man09/08/2021
