Winter Mountaineering

Mountaineering Day

Cost: £35.00     

Starts at 0700

Our mountaineering days will take you along a classic ridge or up a graded gully.  The days will involve the use of just a walking axe (not technical climbing axes) however could take us into some very exposed areas. 

Dinnertime Buttress and Number 2 Gully link up– Glen Coe (Grade 1/2)
This Glen Coe classic lies high up above the valley on Aonach Dubh.  This is a great early season option due to the fact it can be climbed in both summer and winter conditions.

South East Ridge – Cobbler (Grade 2/3) - ARROCHAR
This day involves an exciting traverse of the Cobbler’s South Peak, which usually involves an abseil off, and then onto Centre peak where most folk take the bypass path to the summit. 

Central Gully - Ben Lui (Grade I) – CENTRAL HIGHLANDS
Every winter season we say “this is the year we’ll get this ticked”. Well, last year we got on it and it didn’t disappoint. In terms of size, situation and the fact it tops out on the summit it takes some beating as the best easy gully in Scotland. Fingers and axes crossed it’s in nick this time.

Summit Gully - Stob Coire Nam Beith (Grade II) – GLEN COE
This is the most obvious feature and line on this fantastic peak (north/west top of Bidean).  The route itself offers 450 meters of climbing which provides a long and sustained mountaineering day. Any day out on Bidean’s massif is a good use of one’s time and ability – even more so in winter.

Aonach Eagach Ridge (Grade III/III) – GLEN COE
This outing is popular enough for us to run it at least once a year. It’s billed by some as the hardest scramble on the mainland but the moves are pretty straight forward if you are on a tight rope. Taking in two Munros, we start at the higher eastern end and then scramble towards the western seaboard.
