An Intro to Winter Climbing course will give you all the skills needed to operate in winter including ice axe and crampon use, avalanche awareness, navigation, basic rope work and emergency response. A three day course is ideal to give you chance to look at the rope work, different snow and rock anchors, then put it all into practice on an appropriate route.
- Day One - Rope work for grade 1 and grade 2 gullies, for example Number 2 Gully, Ben Nevis.
- Day Two - Rope work for grade 1 and grade 2 ridges and buttresses, for example Ledge Route, Ben Nevis.
- Day Three - Put it all into action on a suitable winter route such as the Aonach Eagach.
If you have winter walking experience and want to get into roped climbing at grade I and II this is the one for you.
