Mountain Walking Equipment
Now don't let's beat around the bush. Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike, Mount Snowdon and other British mountain ranges are serious walks. Although they can be tackled by most people, to do so safely and in a degree of comfort there are some pre-requisites such as having the correct mountain walking equipment.Often holiday makers decide to climb these mountains on a whim - it's a sunny day, so they start off in shorts, T-shirt and sandals. The summit will be very much colder than when they started, and the ground far more challenging to walk across. On top of that, they'll be miles away from their car and it might start to rain...
What started off as a pleasant family walk can quickly turn into a nightmare. Being properly prepared will make your day far more enjoyable!
On this page we've put together a brief description of what you ought to consider as part of your mountain walking equipment.
