I have completed this walk several times. First thing I must say is avoid weekends, particularly Sunday mornings as it's so popular it's like Piccadilly Circus and no fun at all. Best done on a weekday during school holidays if you have children. Secondly, when you look on a map and see Storey Arms be warned, it is not a pub. Countless walkers have been disappointed by this and the local tourist authority should consider changing it's name for that reason. Thirdly there are two summits on top - the one to the left is not the highest peak so don't waste your energy by climbing that as you have to come down again.Simply carry on to the furthest one to reach the peak. Finally remember that although it's warm at ground level it can be freezing up there, so layers of clothing that you can easily take off and put back on are best. A rucksack, waterproofs, bottles of water, snacks and strong, comfortable footwear are essential. Oh and a camera phone for those photos everyone seems to possess. Above all have a great time !
