Choosing Gloves and Clothing for Scottish Winter Walking and Mountaineering
As we head out into the hills this winter either for trekking, walking, mountaineering or climbing we need to make important decisions that will impact both our enjoyment and safety. We will check the weather and the avalanche forecast. We will prepare our maps and pack our compasses. We will also pay great attention to our gloves and clothing. Choosing gloves and clothing for Scottish winter walking and mountaineering is a key winter skill. What we wear becomes our armour and our shell against the battering winter storms and the freezing wind chill.
Two of our most popular blog posts are on how to choose gloves for Scottish winter walking and mountaineering and also on clothing and equipment for Scottish winter walking and mountaineering.
As those Northern snow and ice covered mountains tempt us onto their summits it seems timely to be reminded of the knowledge contained within these two blogs.
