Home > Requirements for mountain climbing

Mountain climbing will be characterized by warm weather in the low attitudes and cool and sometimes very cold weather. The mountains will also be occasioned by rains even on the dry seasons. The terrain is also rough and rocky especially at the high attitudes. In high attitude and especially in moorlands you find the ground being soggy. For an even free journey you need to have appropriate gears and clothes.

We recommend the following:-
