All 3 of us have all been trying to get our head around what supplies we need for the event or who/what we can borrow this week, as it’s getting scarily close! Me & Chelsea don’t seem to have very much, but luckily we know people who have! The list includes the obvious like walking boots, but who normally has a head torch, GPS tracker or glucose tablets in a drawer?! Think a quick trip to ‘Go Outdoors’ is needed, so we have all the gear!

  • Head Torch 
  • Waterproof clothes -  jacket and trousers
  • Hiking socks - one pair for each mountain

  • Water container - (bottle or Camelbak-style, 1-2 litres)
  • Food and Hill snacks -  (pasta, cereal bars, dried fruit, nuts)
