When planning your route it is important to have a few extra plans in place because things can catch us out much quicker in winter. Bad weather, navigational error, low visibility, poor concentration, forgotten kit; the list of potential problems is long, but none have to be a disaster if a plan is in place.
Top Tip: Everybody loves a well-executed plan B, but on the hills in winter you will need a plan C and maybe even D. This includes exit routes and new objectives. It’s also important that everybody knows of these plans. That way if something happens, everybody knows what is going on.
