Winter requires a different set of equipment, skills and understanding of conditions. We aim to help you become more confident in avalanche assessment, the use of ice axe & crampons, navigation techniques and improve your efficiency in what can be a challenging environment.
Depending on what your own personal goals are we can either guide you up climbs or, with a ratio of 1:2 teach you the skills needed to get you leading with the comfort of an instructor on hand to make sure your gear and belays are safe enough to bring up your second.
As a confident winter walker we will reinforce all the avalanche awareness and route choice while getting onto more complex terrain. While this is not a climbing course we will cover the type of rope-work that will help you safely tackle steeper sections ground and rocky steps that you may come across on some classic Scottish days.
