Main walk description. Various formatting options are available from the toolbar. To insert an email address or hyperlink, it's easier to type the text first, select it and click on the 'globe link' button in the toolbar. Font size and colour are also selectable, but be sensible! Note that details and formatting may be edited by the Walks coordinator prior to going live on the website to correct errors and retain consistency with other walk descriptions.


The remaining details below should be filled in as soon as the information is known. However, if you haven't reccied the walk yet, the remaining details can be provided at a later date prior to the walk.


Walk Difficulty


This should be checked if you think your walk will be particularly suitable for people trying out a walk for the first time. For example, easier walks of grade 'Moderate' or below which don't have a fast pace are good candidates. If checked, a 'Suitable for New Members' comment will be visible in the walk's header area.

Scrambling options

Please note: Whilst we encourage group members to lead harder walks, it must be stressed that walks involving scrambling obviously carry a greater risk of injury. Group management skills on steep ground are therefore essential to minimise this risk. Suggested experience and techniques are listed alongside each scrambling grade below.

Grade 1 scrambles encompass routes which are always obvious and have varying levels of exposure. Grade 1 routes with minimal exposure include Wilderness Gully and Cribau in Snowdonia, but you'll still need to be aware of your entire group and be able to offer basic spotting assistance to those experiencing difficulty.

Still Grade 1 (easy), but routes are more exposed so you'll need to be confident you can move around the group during the scramble and be able to offer assistance (both physical and psychological) in a non-intrusive manner. Examples include Crib Goch, Tryfan North Face and Jack's Rake. The carrying of a confidence rope is recommended, but not essential.

Grade 2 scrambling is not for beginners or those without a head for heights and this should be made clear as part of the event write-up. It may be difficult to move around and offer assistance, so the group size should be kept small (less than 10 people) and those with greater scrambling experience intermixed with those who have less. You should carry a confidence rope all times and be able to set up appropriate belay systems when required. Sinister Gully on Bristly Ridge borders on a Grade 2 scramble.

Grade 3 scrambles border on rock-climbs and require all group members to be skilled scramblers. The carrying of a scrambling rope (e.g. 30m half-rope) is essential, along with prior knowledge of suitable belay points en-route, especially if group members haven't climbed the route before. A sling and karabiner may also be needed for fixed belays, a belay plate may also be useful as an alternative to an Italian hitch. Pinnacle Ridge on St Sunday Crag has a sustained vertical pitch of around 6m and is classed as a Grade 3 scramble.


Does not include stopping time for lunch, breaks etc. The time is based on a variation of Naismith's rule of thumb : 4km/h, plus 1 minute for every 10m climbed, and should be used as a rough guide only.

The suggested ticket will depend on the type of walk. For linear walks, it may be cheaper to consider a Rail Ranger or Wayfarer ticket for anywhere-travel within certain areas if the outward and return journey are on different lines. Price boundaries may also be considered - if doing a linear walk on the same line, it may be cheaper to purchase a return for the nearer station and a single to/from the further. You can email the walks coordinator if you need any advice.
