OK, a weekend in Kintail walking the Five Sisters in freshly fallen snow has got me seriously hooked on a bit of winter hillwalking.
This time round I had the luxury of being led by a fully qualified leader, however over the christmas holidays I fancy a couple of days walking through the glens of Lochaber by myself and had a couple of questions.
Would three season camping equipment (thermarest, synthetic bag, double skin north face tent) be:
B)OK if I go to sleep fully clothed in warm clothing and don't mind being a 'bit' cold.
C)Fine, because I'm staying in the Glens.
If I'm blazing my own trail through snow with camping gear on my back, whats a reasonable distance to aim for in a day, 10km?
Any other advice? (I've got poles, crampons etc. Planning to Walk from Spean Bridge to Kingshouse probably).
