It's very easy for people to query the height of Welsh mountains. And joke about Mt Sunflower. A good number of Welsh mountains have climbing routes that, I am told, are a very real challenge. Especially in winter. And sadly, some, like Snowdon, regularly claim lives. I walk them alone in winter, and almost every night in my B&B there is a report on how the Search and Rescue Teams, (with the good old RAF Sea King helicopters often in use), have been saving life that day. Sometimes they just recover bodies.
Many have "normal" walking routes that are far from easy. If my understanding of the route Emmie used on her descent is correct, (I have only researched that mountain, not been up it yet), it is one that has a very challenging section. A scramble on a very steep section of lose scree.
I've generally found them harder than mountains almost 3 times their height in Bavaria, (Germany).
I have nothing but the greatest respect for those Welsh Mountains now.
