Winter Mountaineering


Are you an experienced hill walker who wants to learn how to use crampons and an ice axe for the first time? Or an experienced mountaineer looking for a new challenge? This course is aimed at experienced summer hill walkers and scramblers who want to venture into the mountains in winter. We aim to help you develop confidence and good judgement, as well as the practical skills required to move safely using crampons and a walking or mountaineering axe.

We will provide all of the safety equipment. You will need to provide some of your own personal gear including a rucksack, winter mountaineering boots (B2/B3), warm and waterproof clothing, and a packed lunch. Maximum instructor to participant ratio: 1:4
