Renowned as the only mountain
in Wales that can't be climbed without using your hands. Walkers can take the south ridge with a little easy scrambling
near to the summit, whilst scramblers can climb the north ridge and choose a line to suit their ability - not forgetting the
essential detour to climb The Canon on the way up!
Fancy climbing the most northerly
Munro? This is the one. It's a long drive for most of us, but this mountain offers remoteness and an experience far removed
from the busier mountains further south.
A great two-day trip, where you
can ignore paths and plan a route to take in any of the granite tors that you fancy seeing (as well as the atmospheric standing
stones and stone circles). With wild camping permitted on Dartmoor you can set up camp wherever you choose (bearing in mind
normal 'wild camping' etiquette).
This is wonderful long and high
mountain walk. Head up Great Gable from Wasdale Head and then do the full circuit of Kirk Fell, Pillar, Red Pike and (if you
have the energy left) Yewbarrow. You will need between seven and eight hours to complete this. A Lakeland classic.

The mountain that dominates the south side of Glen Coe, as the highest mountain in
the area it has spectacular views including north to Ben Nevis. A complex mountain with ridges radiating from the main
summit, its subsidairy peaks include the dramatically named Stob Coire Sgreamhach. A great approach is through the atmospheric
Lost Valley from Glen Coe.
