Imagine traversing the high hills, hot sun overhead, far reaching views in every direction. Lightly clad in T-shirt and shorts and carrying a light rucksack with water rations you make your way over these quiet hills. An early start allows plenty of time for relaxation later in the day.

If you've never tried it, gorge scrambling is a most memorable experience. This is the classic of them all. Previous trips have used it in both ascent and descent and had a wonderful day of scrambling in dramatic gorge scenery. Backup vehicles are used to facilitate the full traverse of the gorge. An experience not to be missed.
For scramblers with a good head for heights, this ridge is a must. The "Crib Goch" of Mallorca. Interesting, strenuous and enjoyable.
