The ridge SW from this summit has very rough ground caused by big areas of exposed and very irregular slabs and also some 80cm high rushes. Coming towards the top it took around half an hour to complete just 1200m.

The photo looks along the ridge and away from the summit to the SW. The vague shapes in the mist to the right are the slabs of the NE of Coomnadiha. For all the apparent wildness of this scene in fact there is a road coming up from the Baurearagh Valley (beyond the left of this picture) which at its highest point reaches within 250m of the line of the ridge (around 90m of climbing).
