Ice Climbing

Scottish Winter

The high mountains of Scotland offer a unique challenge to climbers and mountaineers. Scotland is well known for its unstable weather patterns, variable temperatures and high altitude. As a result you will not be far from an unexpected challenge. Whether you choose to learn to navigate confidently to the summit of your first Munro or pick your way carefully up a gleaming ice gully one thing is for sure, our highly-qualified and enthusiastic instructors will help you develop the skill, technique and confidence you need to get more out of this rugged mountain environment. A winter skills course in Scotland is not to be missed. Some of the most breathtaking and memorable days on the hill can be in the winter. Come with us and learn how to experience the mountains safely.

Lakes Winter

The winter is an amazing time of year in the Lake District. Already challenging peaks take on a new seriousness and rapidly changing conditions. The Lake District is a fantastic location, ideal for learning new winter skills and techniques. Having a solid set of foundation skills enables the mountain walker to venture into the winter environment and make choices and decisions to stay safe.

When conditions are in we can provide guiding. Due to the fickle conditions in the Lake District we like to remain flexible with booking dates and like to remain open to the possibility of re-booking when conditions are favourable or changing location - keep a weekend free and we can always head up to Scotland. We will endeavour to take you to the best locations to suit your needs.

Keep an eye on our blog for winter condition updates…
