News from Sierra Nevada Guides

Latest news from the Sierra Nevada Mountains of Southern Spain

Friday, 20 January 2012

The British Mountaineering Council have produced a new "skills" booklet aimed at those new to hill walking titled: "New Hill Walkers." This handy resource covers all of the basics and is well worth the read even by those with years of experience! It can be downloaded free of charge or ordered from their shop for just the cost of postage.

Topics covered include: clothing and equipment, navigation, hazards and how to avoid them, walking in winter, access and the environment and emergency procedures.

Another good and useful publication from the BMC and recently fully revised is "Safety on Mountains" though this one costs.

Sierra Nevada Mountain Guides would like to thank the BMC for their work on these publications, and will be recommending  them to our clients.
