This is a short, sharp little scramble is taking place in the early evening and can be completed easily in a couple of hours at the end of the day.

Penmen-bach Arete looms over the A55 and teases all those who have a scrambling mindset and who regularly use the North Wales Expressway.

This west facing prominent arête catches the afternoon sun and offers some glorious early evening 'hands-on-rock' thrills with great views sea views, and benefits from easy toll-free parking, a quick walk-in and walk-off.

Its carries a high grade (grade 3), which mainly due to the exposer and lack of available protection for those needing the use of a rope. (which means the route is usually soloed). However, in my option it is no more difficult than some sections of Crib Goch and should not put off a competent grade 1 scrambler who has a good head for heights and a respectful appreciation of drops.

Please note that the event may be liable to change or cancellation due to inclement weather.
