aonach eagach ridge in winter

Under snow and ice the British mountains are a beautiful but hazardous place to be unless you’re well versed in safe and efficient winter travelling skills. From January through to March I provide winter mountaineering guiding and instruction:


For hill walkers I coach winter skills which include ice axe and crampon use, navigation and avalanche awareness in the winter environment.


For the climbers I can introduce and coach you in the rigours and joys of winter climbing, looking at everything from snow belay construction to efficient stance management.


If it's guiding you are after then I can remove the doubts and ensure a great day out from Lakeland scrambles, classic ridges or your first winter routes.
