Summer Check List
This page contains important information for all hill walkers and mountaineers who venture into the UK Mountains in summer conditions.
Adopt a progressive approach to adventure and develop your skills incrementally by building on past experience. - Alternatively enrol in one of our skills workshops or training courses and fast track for the current season.
Preparation is crucial
Check the weather forecast. Bad weather increases the risk on hazardous terrain. The wind speed and its direction are important particularly on ridges and exposed ground; Temperature, both high and low affects the body’s ability to perform; Precipitation makes river crossing difficult and directly influences how wet we get exacerbating wind chill; Lightning is a serious danger on exposed high ground.
Always evaluate how these details relate to your route?
