Remember:

  • Despite being summer it can still be very cold in the hills, especially if the wind picks up.
  • If taking on a serious scramble it would be advised to take a rope and maybe some basic rock gear. Be confident you have the skills to use them also.
  • Make sure you are aware of the weather forecast. Ask around and someone will know.
  • Make sure someone in the group knows how to use a map and compass.
