Mountaineering



Mountaineering courses take place in more challenging terrain and require a high level of fitness. On these courses, you will be introduced to the skills required to plan and undertake journeys in a variety of environments and conditions. Previous hillwalking experience is essential.

Our courses vary from summer mountaineering through advanced winter mountaineering. We also run courses in Scotland and Wales, giving you the opportunity to further develop your experience.

The skills covered on these courses range from basic ropework, through to use of ice axe and crampons. Other skills covered include ropework for scrambling, navigation in poor visibility, movement on steep ground, and techniques for journeying in winter conditions.
