Things to look out for:-
Did you know about the three monunments up there? 1) The summit triangulation point. 2) South of this just above Striding Edge is a plaque in remembrance of Charles Gough who died in 1805 after falling from Striding Edge. 3) The other plaque away from the ridge edge on the other side commemorates the first plane landing on any mountain in 1922.
