There are two competition formats running over the weekend, High Adventure and High Adventure Lite. They have different rules and kit lists but are in the same competition area with the same checkpoints and points.
This is the same as the original format and is the ultimate challenge. Teams can be of any age from Explorers or Network. You will have to carry full equipment with you on your days on the hill.
High Adventure Lite
This is a lighter version of the event for younger teams. Teams are to be from Explorers aged up to 16 with at least one member over the age of 14½. You will only carry a day sack with your clothing, emergency equipment, food and water. Your camping equipment will be transported from base camp to top camp and be waiting for you when you arrive. This will also be transported back for the end of the event.
