How difficult is it?
It’s an extremely tough challenge and is only suitable for very fit and experienced mountain walkers. Fit and experienced mountain walkers can achieve the full traverse in a very tough but highly memorable and rewarding day. Such a day is perhaps best done in the company of a friend or at the most a small group. The nature of the traverse and the ground covered means that this is not suited for mass participation mountain events or fund raising challenges by inexperienced hillwalkers.
It’s very rocky, and both uphill and downhill sections are demanding. Navigation can also be problematic without previous knowledge of this area of Snowdonia. For fellrunners, the record stands at an unbelievable 4 hours 20 minutes!
1-day package – £170 per person – minimum of 4 (1:6 max ratio)
