    Not sure of the name, tbh, as it was a very long time ago. Mention of the ridge is familiar though, and I was struck by how the easy way down was a stroll in the park by comparison.

    Sounds like you went over Crib Goch, with descent by Pyg track/Miners or Llanberis path :) Have "tiptoed" over top of Crib Goch on glorious autumn day buzzing over mere mortals "crabbing along" but was crestfallen after later seeing footage of guy on mountain bike make traverse

    Nice one fella, thought avatar of you was on Crib Goch, but was slightly thrown by cool halo behind you and the fact i badly need to get some glasses. Happy hunting :)

    Do any fellow Scottish hillwalking DPer's remember Killin Youth Hostel. Closed under the rationalisation of Scottish YH's and then semi demolished. Absolute travisty as such a wonderful place. Spent many an hour here, especially one evening when I drank far to much beer and then climbed 3 Munro's with a hangover :p Happy days :)

    Sorry about some of the quality of shots as taken through windows.

    After closure before partial demolition



    and after

    Unfortunately never made it there, have only made a few trips to Scotland as Snowdonia "on doorstep". Still, drives me mad to see buildings/facilities like these go, but have to admit am in some small way part of the problem as often bivvy out or use bothies.
