Mont Blanc Training Weekend – Scottish Highlands – October 2021
October 9, 2021 - October 10, 2021
This late summer course in the Scottish Highlands makes an inspiring complement and progression from our Snowdonia Mont Blanc training weekend…
The high mountains of Lochaber provide a superb arena for UK based alpine mountaineering and this early autumn period is often a magical time to be in the far North West Highlands.
This then creates an inspiring mixture of terrain for quality alpine training and enjoying some long routes and physical journeys in the highest mountains in the UK. The Western Highlands 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 works very well for anyone preparing for the ascent of Mont Blanc the following summer or any other strong hill walkers / scramblers 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.
