Apologies if this is a lame question but could really do with some advice from anyone with experience of doing the challenge.
I am planning to do this with some friends later in the summer. I've been training and am generally fit and healthy. The length and walking etc is not what worries me
I only have one arm, this generally does not restrict me in any sort of exercise or activity. However I am worried about forms of climbing where 2 hands would generally be needed
Do any of the scrambles involve any sort of hardcore climbing or are they more just mind your step and use hand/s for balance type of scrambles.
I've googled a few images and videos of the scrambles and they look fine but wanted to hear from people who have done it.
Really appreciate anyone's perspective. Cheers

Whilst the route does get a little steep in places there are no scrambles of the type that you will find in a guide book on scrambling. True, there are short stretches where I would instinctively start using hands, but nothing that should cause you concern. In winter it might be more of a problem, but in summer I would not worry at all. Just take someone with you - and nobody should really do it alone - and I am sure you will get around fine.
