Learn to Winter Climb

Winter climbing days are aimed at those who are familiar with some basic winter mountaineering and rock climbing skills, which we can cater for as a package over a number of days if you wish.

Typically, a Learn to Winter Climb day will cover the core skills required to safely lead winter climbs at grade I to III and will focus on:

  • Techniques for approaching winter climbs
  • Use of technical ice axes and crampons on a variety of surfaces
  • Use of winter specific lead climbing equipment and snow belay construction
  • Coaching of personal climbing movement skills on ice and mixed ground
  • Safe travel in the mountains in winter including interpreting avalanche conditions

Prices start from £175 per day based on a ratio of 1 instructor to 2 people.
