Winter High Tops Cost £35.00 Starts at 0700 The days will involve a high top, either a Munro or one of our finer Corbetts, so you will need to have previous hill walking experience. Once the snow gets firm enough for winter tactics to come in to play folk need to have the skills to cope with conditions.
Our Intro to Scottish winter skills course is recommended for anyone needing to learn the basics or improve rusty technique. All winter High Tops are weather dependent. If there is a high avalanche risk on the slopes we’re planning to go on to we will change the route or the hill. If storm winds are blowing we may have to take in a shorter, lower hill.
Walks in December will include an element of winter skills if conditions allow. This will be to refresh winter movement technique, it’s not a comprehensive winter skills coaching session. Folk that need that should go on a winter skills course.
07/01/18 – Stob a Choire Odhar & Stob Gabhar 15.8km + 1220 metres of ascent
These Blackmount Munros provide a great outing in winter. Beginning at Victoria Bridge the way follows the track up to Clashgour Hut then up to Stob a Choire Odhar by a path. The route continues easily until the steep pull up to the Aonach Eagach , where there’s a short section which feels like mountaineering to gain the main bulk of Stob Gabhar. An easier descent off the summit by Stob Maol leads back gown to the Allt Toag and the way back.
