This exciting walk combines part of the well know Bernia Circuit route with the ascent of the west summit. Our version of this walk starts at the Bernia Restaurant. Although a shorter walk than our Bernia West Summit Circuit, this walk spends more time walking the ridge and requires a bit more care and skill. Part of the way (from A to B on map) is very rough steep scree.
The best way across the ridge to the west summit is waymarked. The ridge traverse is exciting and involves a few interesting scrambles, the toughest of which are now made easier with the aid of chains and ropes. Reaching the summit is rewarded with extensive views and a sense of accomplishment. The descent, however, is not a walk in the park. It requires more scrambling with chain and rope followed by a steep, often loose surfaced path (more scree) back down to the Fort.
