Yes ,you will have no problem following path.There is a way by road but I did not take it .I ,at 66,did SJ toRCV in just over 7 hours.RCV is a very welcoming end of day.Hope you enjoy.Buen Camino.Philip.
As a keen fell walker you should have no problem with the ascent.I too was a fell walker when I tackeled SJ to RCV and the only "problem" I found was it seemed to go on forever,each time I turned what I thought was the last corner,another loomed ahead.The downhill through the trees was very steep in parts,but if dry and taken with care is easy enough.Buen Camino.
