Matterhorn Training Weekend – Scottish Highlands – September 2020
September 26, 2020 - September 27, 2020
This late summer course in the Scottish Highlands makes an inspiring complement from our Snowdonia Matterhorn training weekend…
The high mountains of Lochaber provide a superb arena for alpine mountaineering and this can be a magical early autumn time to be in the far north! The Western Highlands also provide an ideal location for a physical challenge par excellence with sea level or low altitude starts to climb the higest and most celebrated mountains of the UK, like the North Face of Ben Nevis and Glencoe.
This course would work very well for anyone preparing for the Matterhorn ascent the following summer; for aspiring alpinists or any mountaineers keen to develop their alpine movement skills and enjoy a cracking couple of days mountaineering in the Scottish Highlands, whilst meeting some other like minded folk.
The venues used are usually the North Face of Ben Nevis and Glencoe although there are many other alternatives including low altitude high quality big boot rock climbing & training down Glen Nevis if the West Coast weather is not conducive to doing the high mountain routes.
The 2 physical and technical days should really compliment the fitness and endurance training you are able to do on a regular basis from home. We call this ‘Bulls eye training’ and we hope you can join us for a memorable weekend in the mountains of the West Highlands later this summer season…
