Route Map

 

 

The first of the morning light catches Robinson, today’s first objective.

 

Low High Snab.

 

Looking up Scope Beck towards Robinson – my route today would take a hard right just past the trees and up onto High Snab Bank……….

 

……….it is short steep climb up onto the High Snab Bank ridge………..

 

………..but on reaching the ridge the reward is ever expanding views across Newlands and beyond as height is gained.
