Winter Climbing Courses

We will be based in the between Aviemore & Fort William in the Cairngorm National Park for winter 2014 to run our winter climbing courses, skills courses & mountaineering courses. Aviemore allows easy access to the northern ‘Corries’ of Cairngorm which offer reliable conditions through the winter. Being based just off the A9 also allows access to the wilder mountains of the NW highlands - Torridon, the Fannachs and even Sutherland are possible in a day trip, as is the gondola accessed mountain of Aonach Mor, Ben Nevis and Creag Meagaidh are also easily accessed.  For some inspiration on classic winter climbs have a look through the Cold Climbs book list.

* Aviemore has a great range of accommodation, a good selection of cafes, pubs and shops, plus good transport links too. Fly to Inverness or get the Caledonian Sleeper.

Email to enquire about any of these courses - Prices for courses and information on equipment and accommodation can be found here.
