The steep, scree-ridden path from the Three Tarns col to Bowfell summit is bordered on its right side by four slabby buttresses forming a discontinuous ridge. Their steeper left flanks provide a myriad of variants, only the most obvious are described. Although this area is briefly mentioned in Vol 1 of Scrambles in the Lake District, the rocks seem to be crackling pristine. Everywhere the climbing is pleasant on clean, rough, sun-drenched rock. The ridge will "go" throughout the year. Indeed, ice climbers visiting on a cloudless/windless mid-Winter's day will probably regret not bringing their rock shoes and chalk bags instead of axes and crampons.
