Hill Bagging

I knew about Munro bagging but had not realised there was other classifications for hills and mountains.

A Munro is a mountain over 3,000 feet. If haven’t you heard of Munro bagging, it is where some people who like climbing, ¬†climb all the mountains in Scotland over 3,000 feet? Their aim being to climb all the Munros.

I was looking up some information on Titterstone Clee and Brown Clee and kept wondering what the little bit saying Marilyn meant. When I looked it up I found this whole world of other classification for hills and mountains.

I am not going to explain them all here but there are names like Wainwrights, Donalds and Tumps. Tumps in Shropshire are burial mounds, and probably in other parts of the country as well.

These classifications are said to give climbers something to aim for, others say it devalues climbing.

However you feel towards these classifications it is still interesting subject.

In future look for the hill classifications in blogs about Shropshire Hills.
