Descending from Climbing in the Cairngorms


Winter Climbing & Mountaineering

This is a great opportunity to tackle those routes you’ve often dreamed of. The day/s will be tailored to your own needs and will tackle winter routes from grade 2 and up to grade 5 if you wish. We will climb in The Northern Corries of the Cairngorms, with a day possible on Creag Meagaidh. Candidates will have considerable walking experience or summer rock climbing at Diff or above or have some previous winter climbing experience. There will be the opportunity to lead routes if deemed appropriate.

Winter Climbing Courses

Over the course period we will be aiming to cover the main points to winter climbing techniques.  You will be seconding several winter climbs.  Please note this course will not be covering winter leading skills.

At the end of the course we anticipate you to have developed a strong understanding into winter climbing skills and be confident to second a variety of winter climbs.

You will gain an understanding into the equipment required for and how to use for Winter Climbing; ice axes, crampons etc.  We aim to ensure an understanding into Avalanche awareness and choosing safe routes for walking in to the climbs and walking out after topping out from routes.
