This season, the club has a new grading system for walks.
It is based on a ‘boot’ symbol system where one boot refers to the less difficult walks and five boots refers to the toughest walks.
More detail is on the current schedule which has been e mailed to members.
Last Sunday saw the inaugural ‘2 boot’ walk in the Blackstairs.
As the weather was so pleasant the route was right up to the limit suggested for a 2 boot walk, 10 kms and 500m ascent.
