This is neither a ‘hard’ route nor a quiet route.

In the summer months this route is heavily trafficked, mostly due to its easy route finding, very solid trail and great views. Be warned though the top catches the weather badly and it can be VERY COLD and WINDY on the top when it’s lovely in the valley. In cloud navigation at the top deteriorates rapidly - if you’re not great with a map or compass near this in mind.
