"There's no such thing as bad weather, just bad clothing" 

We have to remember that suitable clothing and provision for the worst expected scenario can mean the difference between an enjoyable adventure and a survival scenario.

its always advisable to carry:

  • waterproofs 

  • hat + gloves

  • spare socks

  • drinking water 

  • lunch + food supplements

  • compass + map

  • whistle + torch (spare batteries)

whilst it might look like a gorgeous day from the valley, it could well be brewing a storm on the tops, and we should always expect it to change.
