- Good-grip shoes
Depending on your route, there are some kinds of right shoes: hiking shoes, walking shoes, climbing shoes, trekking shoes. Whatever kind they are, the most important thing that they should have is a good grip.

You can account how much food you should bring based on a height of a mountain where you plan to climb. A few pieces of cake are enough for a mountain under 1000 meters.

Take-away food should be portable and provide many nutrients. You will have to manage very hard to cook, so chocolate and snack is a good choice.
