Will it be easier to avoid the bog and go via Whitber Hill and Sell Gill Hill? If so approx how much further / longer is this route?

Hi guys - it the walk signposted or do you need a map and compass. Never done it before and me and freind are thinking of having a go tomorrow morning. Will an 8am start be ok too ? Thanks in advance

As a person who has basic map and compass skills i highly recommend taking up mac.hawk's offer of his detailed guide, myself and a group of friends did the walk early June and to be perfectly frank although we had maps/gps etc... we could have and probably did do the walk using the detailed guide, avoided any real wetness and knew quite quickly we were well on track to being below the coveted 12 hours, hope this helps others :)
