Judging from the fly-by and your CR between Scafell Pike and Styhead, maybe you've found a quicker line off the Pike now the scree-shoot is so eroded...

Not sure it's any quicker but certainly less likely to end up doing my ankle in. Completely unintentional - I was at the front of the group at the summit and didn't realise they'd all gone a different way until I was halfway down...

did they pop out in front, with or behind you though?

Two in front (sam watson and mark lamb?) by maybe 10 seconds, the rest behind. I guess if you're at the front of the group you can go quicker down the scree, but if you're in the middle/at the back it might be quicker to take something like my line and avoid the carnage.

yep, I took it pretty easy after a slightly haywire bit at the top - until there was a big bang and shouts of 'below' from those above me, at least...

Just make sure you're at the front, leg it down, and don't look back....
