Winter is coming... #rockclimbing #ridgescrambling #mountaineering #seakayaking

5th October 2020

Things have turned cooler, the nights are drawing in and there even been some snow on the tops.

Over the last month or so we've had plenty of teams out rock climbing and mountaineering, and we've also managed some personal sea kayaking. The weather's been mixed so being creative and flexible has been key to having successful days out.

It's always exciting thinking ahead to winter and hoping for great conditions. This year will be a little different with new covid protocols, but we're looking forward to getting out ourselves as well delivering lots of winter skills, winter mountaineering and ski touring courses. 

Winter isn't quite here yet though and there's plenty of time to enjoy autumn and all its fantastic colours.

Our cousres are beginning to fill up already, so please get in touch if you'd like to join us.

Winter courses

Fun, varied and useful Our guide Johnny took us out on a cold and wintry but not very snowy day for winter skills training. We found patches of snow to practice self-belay and ice axe arrest, and learnt winter navigation skills, with flora and fauna pointed out along the way. The day was very much tailored to our group's needs and abilities so everyone was challenged but not pushed too far. Really fun, educational and useful for future winter walks.
