IMPORTANT : YOUR SAFETY IN THE HILLS

The Committee reminds members and guests of the following important points:

  • You are responsible for your own safety
  • Club officials are not trained mountain leaders
  • Are you fit enough to complete your chosen walk in the available time?
  • Know where you are going on the walk and follow the route on your map.
  • Know how many are in your party and stay together
  • Ensure you have enough food plus emergency rations
  • Carry a map & compass, survival bag, torch, whistle and small first aid kit. Know how to use them.
  • In winter conditions you must carry an ice axe on high level walks (club rule). You are also recommended to carry crampons.
  • Learn how to use your equipment.

Club officials will be happy to give advice on any of these points if requested.
