Definitely not a walk; it's a climb even before you reach the ridge itself there are several short walls to surmount. Absolutely tremendous scramble along knife edge and over pinnacles. Sheer drops on either side particularly north.

The best views of Snowdonia are from just after the Knife edge / Ridge. If it's dry and not too windy and you take your time, it's not as bad as people make out!! If it's wet and windy, take the Pyg track instead!

Crib Goch was scary .... I was told people exaggerate it but it depends on a variety of factors and although I’m glad I did it there was a part that was terrifying. Consider it carefully would be my advice

It can get busy. Recommend going early or later so you don't get held up behind people.
