Guided winter climbing is the obvious choice if you simply want to be guided on some awe-inspiring winter routes, focusing on having a great time out, rather than developing skills. We can focus on ice, snow or mixed climbing depending on the conditions and what you prefer.
If you have specific ‘classic’ routes you would like to do, or would like to try routes at a chosen grade, we will match your enthusiasm for the experience you have in mind. From mountaineering climbs that make the perfect introduction for beginners to challenging routes on the big faces in Scotland, whatever you are interested in doing, we can do it.
