Great work out! Fantastic views. Would call this one hard considering that once you leave the Southface Track poles become sporadic and the terrain is for some distance exposed steep, loose rock / scree. I feel it's best done from Sharplin Falls on the Staverley side. Be prepared for changing weather. May need crampons and ice axes in winter. In summer take sufficient water. Sun orchids along the track over Hooked Knob at the right time of the year.
