There's No Such Thing As Bad Weather

There's No Such Thing As Bad Weather

One of the things I love about our Little Trekkers is the enthusiasm they have for going outside, even when the weather is frightful. In fact, we often find that the worse the conditions, the more adamant they are that they want to escape the confines of the house. I'm quite sure one of the main reasons for this is the need to get kitted-out in their fab outdoor gear. They really do love it.

(Our) First Ascent of Cat Bells (451m) by its North Face

Before we had children, a ‘good day on the hill’ would have meant covering 20km, at least 2000m of ascent, and ‘ticking off’ several ‘big hills’. We dismissed ‘small hills’ in favour of bigger quarry: a winter traverse of the Black Mount; a circuit of Foinaven and Arkle; or Sgurr Nan Gillean by Pinnacle Ridge.
