/ Fell running - UK's most dangerous routes
Well anywhere that a fall or trip would have the same consequences for a walker. If you mean fell racing then FRA rules state that courses should not go over ground where this is likely to happen or where competitors might dislodge rocks on to other competitors.
I'd reckon that the Cuillin Ridge Traverse is probably the riskiest, even a slip on the easy non-exposed sections is going to hurt.
A few years ago some complete pillock, who had his terrified girlfriend with him who he really wasn't looking after properly, legged it along the top of Crib Goch in a blowing gale, tripped and almost took my (similarly terrified) mate off with him. Fortunately he was able to hold on and said pillock regained his footing. We later saw the rescue helicopter and hoped it wasn't for his (possibly ex-) girlfriend.
I haven't tried that yet but want to soon. I can think of bits of it that i have run where you could easily just keep on running and run right off. Coming out of Portreath, for example, toward Basset cove.
I meant to to do a srretch of the Breton coast path, the GR34, by night a couple of weeks ago, but did it by day instead. There were a couple of places on that where you are really close to a fatal drop
How about the Cuillin ridge for Summer and the Ramsay Round for Winter?
Why do you ask?
Do the Cuillin in winter over one day or something like Tower Ridge on the Ben.

Run fast? Or do you want extreme in an easy to get sense?
