Advanced (Tuesday) Walks 2017

 

Please ensure you are fully equipped as per our recommendations, particularly during winter season.  All the walks are timed based on normal walking conditions.  Walking times during winter can be significantly longer, so please do not plan anything in the expectation of getting back at the published time.  Please ensure you are fully equipped for any conditions.  The return times are estimates, which can be rather vague in inclement conditions.  If any walk is cancelled early enough the details will appear on the website, usually the home page.  Otherwise a decision will be made at the normal meeting time.

 

 

I have my next ortho consult at the end of October.

The Very Strenuous (V)  walks will be arduous and will include significant steep and rough ground both up as well as down and a high degree of fitness, confidence and commitment will be needed.  The charge per walk for these will be 8 per person, and may vary depending on the distance travelled, subject to agreement.  The charge for the 'normal' Strenuous walks remains at 5 per person.

 

The cut off point for changing from normal Tuesday strenuous walks to the Very Strenuous is relatively arbitrary and defines a step change in degree of exertion required, the limits are based on overall ascents of over 600m and a 'level ground equivalence' of greater than 17.  Apart from the length, height and more challenging ground what adds to the difficulty is the travel time away from home.  But some Very Strenuous walks are easier than others, please discuss with me before committing yourself.  More information is available on the fitness note which is relevant reading for those aspiring to do the Very Strenuous walks.
