A casual review of travel information in an information shop in Coniston assesses this climb in the most difficult category. We paused to read this (we are both mid 40s), but decided to set out on the climb and see how things went. At times a walking stick is useful, but you can get by without one. The trail is a good steep challenge for novices, but it would be a shame if the spare and dire information in the guides were to discourage someone from taking on this engaging (2.5 hrs. each way) and fine walk. The top was windy and clouded, with exhilarating breaks and views. Lots of other climbers towards the top of the trail, but generally not crowded. A great pub at the lower trailhead.
