Winter Climbing Courses

Winter Climbing. GulliesIf you have an ambition to climb a snow gully, ice or mixed winter climbs, learn  to lead  or brush up on your techniques we can instruct you and guide you towards that goal.

Our climbing courses take the next step up from Winter Mountaineering Courses and look closely at the specifics of winter climbing techniques such as using two ice axes and double rope systems.

It is essential you have winter mountaineering experience and some basic rock climbing knowledge to attend these courses.

Courses can be two or five days long and the skills tuition maybe be given on steep or graded ground up to Grade III.

Ice Climbing CoursesDuring a two day course you will focus on the specific areas such as.

  • Rope work systems.
  • Using twin ice tools.
  • Placing running belays, change overs and leading through.
  • Belaying on snow, ice and rock.
  • Descent and escape methods.
  • Route choice.

Five day courses give you the time to develop and climb some classic routes, ridges and gullies.
