Some good advice from Greg Boswell.

It’s great when you see some of the top climbers giving good advice. Greg has let me publish his words from last week there’s a lot of sense in them!

Great advice

It’s all very good and well running of time the hills to play in the snow but make sure you go prepared. Think of the others that may have to put themselves at risk if you need help.

Obviously accidents happen, I have had my fair share of unforeseen mishaps some bigger than others but with the changeable weather conditions just now it’s best to er on the side of caution and go into the hills ready for any eventually.

I’ve been in Torridon three days and I have seen the hills white all over soggy and wet the next day so don’t underestimate the mountains due to the info you’ve seen online or in pictures! Greg Boswell

Many thanks to Greg for allowing me to quote his wise words. Stay safe and enjoy the wild safely,
