The following essential kit is required for this walk. Once a booking has been made, further advice on kit will be included. This may include tips and recommendations, and suggestions on less vital ‘nice to have’ kit.
Suitable walking boots or shoes.
General hill walking boots with ankle support and sole unit with good grip are ideal.
Waterproof jacket and trousers.
The jacket should have a hood. Shell jackets or insulated waterproof jackets are both good. Insulated ones can determine your choice of clothing.
Suitable clothes for walking.
Wear what works for you, but not jeans! Walking trousers are ideal. A non cotton base layer with wicking properties helps keep you dry and comfortable.
Spare warm top.
A fleece or warm jumper/jacket that you can carry or stow easily is advised.
Snacks as well as a light prepared lunch are ideal. Some easily portable fruit is recommended.
Bottle or ‘bladder’ with at least 1 litre capacity.
Hat and gloves.
The temperature at the walk start may be ambient, but can then be biting cold on the summit – be prepared!
