Winter Mountaineering

winter mountaineeringThe aim of this training is to give you the skills to progress from winter hill walker to mountaineer.

We offer guided days out, where you can experience mountain journeys taking on steep snow, rock and ice, on routes like Tower Ridge on Ben Nevis, the Aonach Eagach Ridge in Glencoe or the Fiachaill Ridge in the Cairngorms.

Our other option is to come along and learn the skills so that you can take on more technical and exposed terrain without needing to be guided.

Winter equipment such as ice axes, crampons, helmets, harnesses and goggles can be provided free of charge.
