This is a great opportunity to tackle those winter climbing routes you’ve often dreamed of in Aviemore & Scotland. The day/s will be tailored to your own needs and will tackle routes from grade 2 and up to grade 5 if you wish. We will aim to climb in The Northern Corries of the Cairngorms, with a day possible on Creag Meagaidh. But the weather and conditions will dictate where we go so that we can make the most of the days and have the best/most appropriate learning environments. 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.
