Scottish Winter Mountaineering
The Scottish Highlands in winter are an ideal place both for quality mountaineering skills training; using an ice-axe and crampons and for an adventurous mountain experience wrapped up in to a single day. Whilst climbing the Scottish 'Munro's' (mountains over 3000ft) you can serve a mountaineering apprenticeship par excellence. As well as the summits, ascents of the more difficult and rightly famous gullies and ridges can be and made and climbs of all difficulties are available to ensure the right level of challenge. The skills of navigation, avalanche awareness, route finding and ropework can all be trained effectively in this exacting yet extremely rewarding environment.
Our winter mountaineering courses are tailor-made and thus far more likely to meet your aspirations than booking on a pre-arranged course.
With low ratios we are able to move at exactly your pace and progress through your own mountaineering apprenticeship at the rate most appropriate for you. In this way you will never feel held back by a less fit and able group member or alternatively never feel pressured into doing something that has your eyes on stalks! Similarly the venues chosen can revolve around your past experience, future aspirations and what classic summits you want to tick off!
From our winter base in Fort William we are able to reach a wide variety of venues from the Southern Highlands to Glen Coe, Ben Nevis and Aonach Mor in Lochaber. We can also travel east to Creag Meagaidh and the Northern Cairngorms. That’s a lot of variety in a week’s mountaineering.
Please get in touch to discuss your requirements and previous experience.
