"This route takes you over the top of one mountain, down into a col, and then up to the summit of one of the High Peaks. All of the climbs and descents involve scrambling up and down rocky ledges, but as a snowshoe hike these obstacles might at worst be described as awkward rather than difficult, especially when compared to some of the truly difficult mountains described in this book. Indeed, this is a popular snowshoe route that is followed by a variety of hikers every winter." Read more
