Self reliance is a fundamental principle of mountaineering. By participating we accept this and take responsibility for the decisions we make. These 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.

In a contrast to yesterday, today I started a Summer Mountain Leader Assessment course with students at West Highland College. The first day covers all sorts of things such as navigation, what equipment to carry, managing incidents and medical problems, improvised carries, stream crossings and lots of regulations and administrative details regarding mountain leading. It was a cool day with showers falling as snow above 900m!
