Grading of Walks

Because of the mountain terrain the North Wales Ramblers operate a more exact grading system than the one used by Ramblers.  Further details are contained in the six monthly Walks in North Wales booklet, which is sent to all members.

Grading:  Letters, from A to E, indicates how hard or easy the walk will be.

A    Strenuous, mostly mountains, perhaps including some scrambling.  If easier
       terrain, the walk will be long.

B     Moderate, for the reasonably fit, but usually visiting the mountain tops.

C     Moderate, hills and moorland up to 2,000ft/600 metres

D     Easy, mainly pastoral.

E      Leisurely, pastoral and often a half day walk.
