In my opinion this is the route of choice for me. If you are not keen on scrambling but still want the epic views then go this way. Easy on the legs and will be spectacular during summer on a clear day. It's a must.

I always prefer to go up a scramble than go down as it is more fun but if you come up Striding Edge then the only option with Swirral is to go down it. Will come up it next time.

Great edge to walk along but be careful as steep drops either side.

This ridge isn't for the faint hearted as it can be difficult especially during bad weather.
