BETTER SAFE THAN SAD AND SORRY - preaching to the converted I know but just in case ...

Check the local weather forecast before you set off and plan accordingly. Remember the weather can turn quickly!

If weather conditions turn bad, don’t be afraid to change your plans, and if in doubt turn back.

Ask other walkers coming down what the weathers and conditions are like up top

Be prepared - check your gear -  take waterproofs, spare warm clothing, hat, gloves. food and drink (water - at least 1.5-2 litres for a full day out), a map, a compass, a whistle and a survival bag.

Make sure you know how to use your gear - especially the map and compass!

Don't rely on mobile phones - trust me the signal can be random up top to say the least

Remember your countryside code - no littering and leave gates as you found them!

If in doubt, why not seek the advice of an expert - try one of the excellent Helvellyn Walking Guides
