Are You Ready for 46Climbs?

46Climbs week is quickly approaching! Are you ready?

When preparing for your challenge it is key to plan ahead for weather, and trail conditions.

Now that we are getting towards the end of the summer, temperatures are beginning to get cooler at night and in the early mornings. Along with cooler temperatures, weather conditions are more unpredictable especially on the summits. Even though September is normally fairly dry, a rainy day could cause problems for an ill prepared hiker. Below are some, but not all, essential items for a Fall time hiker.

  1. Backpack
  2. Headlamp
  3. Emergency Blanket
  4. First Aid Kit
  5. Whistle
  6. Map & compass
  7. Water & Possibly a Filter
  8. Water and Wind proof jacket
  9. Gloves & hat for the summit
  10. Warm layers
  11. Extra socks
  12. Good hiking boots or trail sneakers
  13. Sunglasses
  14. Enough food for your hike, and some more in case of an unexpected circumstance
