Great ridge scramble
by Sweeney  31 Jan 2023
Headed out to climb the Sturral from Port to the west. Scrambled directly along the ridge, and then turned around at the last steep few metres to the top, as it involved 1 committing climbing move.
Since then, I've read that it's better to walk around to the back, and climbing the Sturral from the west. This allows you to abseil off the top, and then complete the scramble along the ridge back to the east.
The scramble along the ridge is lovely, exposed with nice moves, but its just quite short. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/5140/comment/23824/
