While most people setting out to climb dozens of summits may reach for the hiking boots
and some thermal socks
, such items have not been used by one climber - a dog.
Tip the Border Collie likes to accompany owner Robert Blair on his outings and has a party piece of sitting on top of trig points, something he has now done no less than 60 times in the Lake District, Yorkshire Dales and northern Howgills, the Westmorland Gazette reports.
He told the paper: "I thought it would be fun to get a picture of him on top of as many trig points as possible. When he sees one now he jumps up to pose."
Mr Blair explained that Tip started off with Scout Scar and has worked his way up the mountain scale, including Helvellyn's Striding Edge.
The end of the famous ridge includes a memorial to a dog who loyally stayed with his owner's body for three weeks in 1805 after the unfortunate climber fell to his death.
