A fantastic roller-coaster of a walk, the Nantlle Ridge is often written of as one of the best ridge walks outside of Scotland. This walk offers a short but not overly steep climb up to the ridge itself and then tackles the route in the reverse direction to that usually taken. It means that most of the difficult scrambles are taken going down and route selection to avoid exposure is made easier; and to top it off the walk ends at the Cwellyn Inn, an award-winning real ale pub. This remains however, a serious scramble (Grade 1 in parts) and should only be attempted by those comfortable with 'hands on rock'. Navigation skills are essential, given the propensity for weather changes and under snow conditions ice axes, crampons and possibly rope will be required.

We did take the dogs on this walk, however given the unguarded cliffs and large amount of livestock there spent a lot of time on leads at a time when sometimes you've got other things to do with your hands (like scrambling)!!!. probably best for hounds who can be totally trusted off lead.
