Winter Walking – Skills Day

Scotland’s mountains change so much in the winter. After meeting at West End Adventures base for a morning cuppa and a brief we will head off to one of Scotland’s fantastic mountains by minibus.

During the day we will focus on a variety of walking skills including:

Boots and Crampons. When to where Crampons and how to ascend and descend whilst wearing them.

Ice Axe techniques.

Self-Arrest, what happens when it goes wrong!

Winter safety equipment.

These courses are a great introduction to Scotland’s mountains in winter.
