Matterhorn Training Weekend – Snowdonia – Oct 2019

October 12, 2019 - October 13, 2019

Click here for full course details »

Many climbers, alpinists, ambitious mountain walkers and even arm chair mountaineers dream of climbing the Matterhorn.  Well, why not, it’s one of the world’s great iconic mountains.  There is a true gasp factor added to almost any view of it, but especially the view from the high street in Zermatt and especially when viewed by somone who has come to climb it!  It’s an intimidating route up an intimidating yet truly inspiring mountain.  Common sense tells you that the ascent will not be easy and, as is often the case in the mountains, common sense is right.  The ascent is long, with very sustained moderate scrambling and some short steep & tricky sections.  The trick is to arrive in the Alps well prepared for this demading ascent and this is where our training courses will make a big difference.

The access to superb quality scrambling and easy rock climbing in Snowdonia is world class and this weekend aims to make the most of this whilst enjoying a high volume of enjoyable movement over moderately technical terrain providing highly relevant training for the ascent of the Hornli Ridge on the Matterhorn.

Scrambling on the Idwal Buttress above Llyn Idwal and the Ogwen Valley. A brilliant area for Matterhorn training!

Early autumn is often a great time to be in Snowdonia and we have run numerous very successful courses with lots of climbing, training and a sociable weekend in the mountains with informal Friday evening drinks plus Matterhorn talk and curry on the Saturday evening.  A great opportunity to train and meet some other like minded folk with similar goals…
