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

The course was a great introduction to winter walking in Scotland. We were a group of 6 plus Liam our guide. On the first day we spent a few hours in the youth hostel covering theory, kit and issues such as avalanche risk before heading towards Cairgorm to practice arrests,navigation and techniques for walking in snow with and without crampons. The second day was a mountain journey which took us to the summit of Cairngorm practicing our winter skills en route and in an area of more plentiful snow to the south of the mountain. The course was very well organised and enjoyable. Liam was the ideal guide - friendly, knowledgable and unflappable.
