We can be as disparaging as we like about situations like this but a) at least people are trying to get outside & appreciate our countryside and b) this points to serious land access issues which is a societal problem, not the fault of individuals (like the post lockdown beaches) https://twitter.com/ariroberts/status/1309845003208884225
Access to land in the UK is very limited, and the organisations that exist to connect people to nature lack diversity. Much of society doesn't know *how* to access non 'mainstream' places - they know they can go to the beach, or climb Snowdon. Those are the clearest options.
Rather than tutting and looking down our noses at people queuing to reach possibly their first ever summit, maybe as a nation we should be harnessing this new enthusiasm for our countryside and educating people in how to access and respect it properly?
