Yeah, we once had to rescue a terrified lady sat down part way along not daring to move. It's part of the Snowdon Horseshoe walk/scramble, a favourite circuit in years gone by.

I'm intrigued by the way it was filmed - from a drone that followed him all the way along the ridge, then turning 360 while staying focused on him.
Another amazing video shows Danny MacAskill posing on top of the Inaccessible Pinnacle, with his bike, photographed from a drone circling round him. The next clip showed him riding along Collie's Ledge with a terrifying drop to his left. Well worth a watch - and a listen - here.

I've wanted to do Crib Goch for ages. We considered it when we did Snowdon last year but there was cloud covering the ridge so we just went up Snowdon direct. My other half has issues with exposure, and had enough trouble with Striding Edge so doesn't think he could cope with Crib Goch. I also have issues with exposure but not nearly as severe as he does. I might struggle with the sheer length of the ridge and the amount of time I feel exposed. I've happily managed Sharp Edge but it's miniscule in comparison.

That's absolutely amazing, lots of skill and nerves of steel.

Never done Crib Goch but run along Striding Edge a couple of times in Mountain Marathons in years gone by
