What to take

A lot of this route is very exposed, so you really need a pair of waterproof walking boots. Even if you set off in fine weather, it is always wise to take waterproof clothing. Take a drink and a snack as there is only the Staff of Life on the route.

If you have a map of the area - take it as an additional safeguard.
