Is this for me?
Recent experience of summer hillwalking in the UK and a very good level of mountain fitness. Some experience of easy scrambling or steep ground would be useful but is not essential. This is a challenging 2-days with some serious exposure. If you’re unsure if this is right for you, please contact us before booking.
