OK this might be seen as perhaps a ‘dodgy’ book review (as it was written by Simon from MountainXperience!) but we still think it’s worth sharing!

Climbing your first mountain might feel like a daunting challenge, but with this book you can make it happen!

Perhaps all you’ve managed so far is a walk to the park or a bimble around the local countryside but now have aspirations to go further and higher. Maybe you’re a parent wanting to take the family on a weekend adventure; or you’ve signed up for a charity challenge to climb Ben Nevis, or Kilimanjaro, or to Everest Base Camp! If you’ve been put off heading into the hills for fear of getting lost, or not knowing what to take with you, or because you’re not sure where to go or simply don’t know where to start, this book is your answer.

Written by qualified and experienced outdoor instructor Simon Pearce, who works full time in the outdoors running his own mountaineering business. His personal mountaineering career has seen him climb mountains on four continents but he spends most of his time between North Wales and the Peak District teaching beginners how to stay safe in the mountains.

The book is packed full of essential knowledge including: where and when to go, what to wear and take with you, dealing with weather and navigation, walking with children and dogs, what to do if something goes wrong and how to go to the toilet! It also includes: fitness tips, how to stay safe walking on your own, hiring a mountain guide and information about popular mountain challenges.

And to get you started, the book features 11 detailed route maps and guides to some of the UK’s most popular and achievable hill and mountain walks. Each route includes step-by-step instructions and high quality Ordnance Survey mapping, and they are designed for beginners who may not have any more outdoor experience than simply reading this book.
