This Winter Mountaineering Course is ideal for those who have previously completed a Winter Skills Course or Introductory Winter Mountaineering Course and want to take the next step to progress to climb graded Scottish routes.
Introductory to Snow and Ice Climbing is aimed at those who already have basic winter mountaineering skills and want to climb snow and ice at grades II to III. Some previous rock or indoor climbing experience and the ability to belay safely is essential.
Our Aconcagua skills weekends in the Lake District are a great opportunity to find out more about the expedition, decide whether it is right for you and ask questions. We can also help you develop a full training programme.
The beautiful Ak-Sai glacier lies in the Ala Archa National Park, a protected alpine area in the Tien Shan Mountains of Kyrgyzstan . You will acclimatise whilst undergoing training in: ice axe and crampons, glacial travel, crevasse rescue, roping up and movement over glaciated alpine terrain, rock climbing and belaying.
