An opportunity for summer walkers to ‘winterise’ their existing skills. The aim of the day will be to provide you with a journey on suitable mountain terrain where you can develop your navigation skills, and combine them with good decision making processes for selecting a safe route in winter, taking into account weather, terrain and personal skill level. If weather and time permit, we’ll take in the summit of one of the peaks in the area.
To help give a bit of flexibility in terms of venue on the day, we’ll supply the relevant mapping, which will be a combination of Harvey’s and/or Ordnance Survey 1:50,000. We can also provide Silva compasses for use on the day. If people have GPS units, they’re welcome to bring them along, and we can chat through the benefits and drawbacks of their use as navigation aids.
It will be necessary to carry winter equipment such as ice axes, crampons and wear crampon compatible footwear. If you do not have the necessary kit, we can arrange hire through Tiso.
For safety’s sake, everyone must be properly equipped for the day; no kit, no walk.
Transport will be available from a central location in Glasgow, at no additional cost.
