As the title suggests I’m kind of new to this hiking malarkey and I don’t really know the nitty gritty of Britain’s mountain / hill routes, beyond some of the big names like Snowdon or Ben Nevis or Saddleworth. Okay, that last one isn’t big as such, just the area I walk the most, seeing as it is literally out of my garden gate and up a hill 🙂
Anyway – back to the Rhinogs. I’ve been spamming my friends with requests to sponsor me on the Yorkshire 3 peaks and one of them, Jeff, mentioned some guys were planning a walk to the Rhinogs and probably before I did the 3 Peaks. Great training for me and a chance to see somewhere new.
Over a few beers (essential training) last night I gathered that they are near Snowdon, we’ll take 2 nights and a day for the trip ( a weekend in mid June) and I don’t need to do any rock climbing. It sounds like a lovely part of the worked and a great hike, so I’ve signed up.
Just started googling what may be in store and based on this (great) blog I just found, it should be excellent walking.
