Nevis Landscape Partnership is running a programme of 19 projects over five years to protect and enhance the Nevis area for us all to enjoy. One of the projects is to train and deploy volunteer rangers and it was my turn to spend a day with the current volunteer rangers today. We talked a bit about mountain safety, things to do to look after themselves when they are out in the hills with a bit of scrambling and navigation too. We went up the SW Rib of Meall an t'Suidhe which is a nice grade I scramble in a brilliant position. The view from the summit was excellent before we went down the wee runners path back to Claggan.
Self reliance is a fundamental principle of mountaineering. By participating we accept this and take responsibility for the decisions we make. These blog posts and conditions reports are intended to help you make good decisions. They do not remove the need for you to make your own judgements when out in the hills.
