A composite scale of distance, climb, quality of track and overnight pack measure trip difficulty. Snow skills and equipment required are an extra consideration and to further identify this added difficulty the word “snow’ will be included in the trip description. This Scale defines the category of each trip as follows:




Easy   1.0 to 1.9
Moderate   2.0 to 2.9
Fit   3.0 to 3.9
  4.0 upwards

Further information is given in the trip description, and when in doubt you should talk to the trip organiser.
