Ascent Trip Report

Great Orme
Well the Great Orme is the first Marilyn I have done that is within the confines of a big town really. There are a myriad of ways up this lump of rock and the likelihood is that you won't get lost as you are following this gps route. Even if you do then it won’t be for long and you are unlikely to die of starvation or hyperthermia either. Find it hike it and enjoy it. The paths are easy to find, the views superb and you might find a cafe at one point that is open. Walked it without taking anything with me on a clear cool winter day, not even a drink but only do this if you are in good shape and don't have some sort of genetic mutation that stops you from keeping to a reasonable 4k an hour pace.
Parking and access: Plenty of parking in Llandudno town and all within easy walking distance of the Orme.
Route Summary: A mix of maintained trails, single track roads and high common paths with great views all the way up.
Route Statistics: 6.65km. 1hr 28min. 258m of height gain.
