This is a great walk and can be very challenging (especially a bit before the peak where you have to scramble up a lot of loose rocks). The views at the top are spectacular.

HikingGreat!

Did this in reverse. About 1 hour 30 to summit then the trail down is quite tricky and not for the faint hearted. Amazing day out. Got lucky with the weather for December.

Really good hike, lots of scrambles & a few boggy sections. Also need to walk through water a few times so good footwear needed! Some really nice views especially coming back down. Few tough parts so hiking experience probably needed.

Great walk, very challenging - especially a bit before the peak where you have to scramble up a lot of loose rocks. I’m not very confident with that kind of thing but managed to do it (just!). If you’re scared of scrambling then I’d take the route coming up the other side

Glorious weather and stunning views, but quite tough walking - relentless climbing and walking down little easier!

Best route is to do this circular route a lot more quieter than the traditional route, amazing inclines and the last 3rd scrambling over loose rocks on a very steep incline then finish with a decent downhill descent although the route can be busy highly recommend this route completed 3hrs 45mins with a 10 minute stop at the summit

Great route up the highest peak in England. Bit of a scree scramble towards the top, but to be expected.

Good, high energy trail, steep incline and long decline with small amounts of climbing and 1 particular area that requires a level head for heights
