Up the ad­ven­ture

Make a day (or a night) of it or use your hill walk to learn a new skill

The Simple Things - - ESCAPE | OUTING -

Bivvy Take your water­proof sleep­ing bag cover and con­sider a night out un­der the stars on one of the sum­mits.

Pic­nic Go af­ter work with your food for sun­set- or star­lit-din­ing – no reser­va­tion re­quired.

Scram­ble Choose a hill with lit­tle rocky out­crops and you can prac­tise ‘scram­bling’ – climb­ing with­out ropes – for added ex­cite­ment.

Use mul­ti­ple routes Got time? Ex­plore the hill by walk­ing up one way, down another, then go­ing back up another path – an ex­er­cise regime that beats any gym.

Nav­i­gate It’s much harder to get lost on small hills, so use them as train­ing grounds for the big­ger peaks – take your map, com­pass and don’t for­get your sense of ad­ven­ture.
