Mountaineering can take place over a day, a weekend or longer, and is tailored to the objectives and ability of the group.

  • Summits and views
  • Accomplish your goals
  • Develop determination and self-motivation

Cons

  • Early starts
  • Physically demanding
  • Cold

Training & Qualifications

You do not need formal mountaineering qualifications unless you want to instruct or guide.

A fully-qualified guide will be a member of the British Mountain Guides Association.

Gear

Mountaineering is not cheap and involves a large amount of gear. Waterproof and thermal clothing is essential, as well as a rucksack, map, compass and water bottle. To climb, a rope, harness, harness, special boots, a belay device, karabiners and more are needed.

Be careful when buying any 2nd hand equipment to ensure that this is not damaged or worn.
