X3 - Walk, Mountaineer & Climb

Mountaineering or Climbing, 1 axe or 2?

It is a big jump from Winter Walking to Scrambling, Mountaineering or Climbing in Winter when the more interesting routes are covered in snow and ice. This course takes things to the next level ascending steeper ground, graded or ungraded, ascending gullies, ridges and easy buttresses to gain summits. With a mix of essential instruction, guiding and venue knowledge we will make the most of your days on the hill.This course would be suited to winter walkers who would like to challenge themselves on steeper ground and who have the addition of Summer scrambling or climbing experience. With small ratios, the gaps can be crossed more easily.
