|Introduction to Winter Mountaineering|
If you enjoy more exciting mountain routes in summer and want to be able to enjoy similar routes under winter conditions, this is the course for you. The course is run as private tuition for individuals or small groups.
The course builds on personal skills with an ice axe and crampons and looks at taking these onto steeper slopes and ridges. We will look at making route choices with regard to difficulty and avalanche dangers and using a rope to safeguard short but tricky or exposed sections.
