Like a Cadbury's Flake

That spine looks like it would crumble in your hands like a Cadbury's Flake chocolate. Just how friable is that rock?

Re: Like a Cadbury's Flake

The rock's not bad, but not great, either. While I don't think that any real routes exist going up the spires, the ridge behind has a great class 3 route. There is a good technical climb on the other side of the mountain, however (5.6)
