Barmouth is the perfect location for the festival, as the less well-trodden mountains of southern Snowdonia offer a true wild wilderness, which is so rare in the UK these days.
Walking off the beaten track is made much easier by the company of a guide with knowledge of the route, wildlife and landscape. If nothing else it takes the stress out of map reading.
The grades are:
A HARD - a walk that will have a number of areas that can place a demand on the physical and mental capability of the walker. There are a number of ascents/descents during the walk, the route at times will require careful navigation and foot placement. Steep ascents and declines, wet ground and distance contribute to the designation A. A new designation of "A+" has been used for even more challenging walks.
B MODERATE - a walk that will include one or two physically or mentally demanding stretches. There may be a number of quite severe ascents and descents which could be considered challenging.
C EASY - a walk that can be completed without undue stress or physical strain. Normally low level walks with easy escape routes to a village or town. A walk may be designated as 'Easy' though it could be demanding due to the distance and time taken to complete. Please note that all walks take place in the surrounding hills and involve some climbing.
