Torridon Winter Mountaineering

Torridon Winter Mountaineering

From £850
Altitude 1,200m Grade: Advanced
3 or 5 mountain days

Aimed at those with previous Winter mountaineering experience, who are looking to experience an alternative dramatic climbing venue.

This week of Torridon Winter Mountaineering will be based in the Torridon region of NW Scotland on grade 1-III routes. It offers mesmerising photographic opportunities with sensational ridges and fantastic winter gullies. The mountains here are unique and totally different to other areas of the UK. Google the main peaks An Teallach, Beinn Alligan and Liathach and you will be impressed! Each peak is an expedition ideal for those aspiring to climbing a 6-7000m Peak, big days on big mountains requiring a high level of fitness.

You may have already been to one of the regular winter destinations of Glencoe, Ben Nevis or the Cairngorms but travel North a couple more hours and you will enter The North West Highlands and some of the most spectacular mountain peaks anywhere in the UK. If you enjoy remote wild, rugged peaks then this is the place for you...we are likely to have them to ourselves.

Previous Experience

To enjoy this week, you need to have previous experience of winter mountaineering to at least Scottish Grade II (Alpine PD+/AD) and have a high level of fitness to enjoy multiple 8-10hr days. In addition, you will need to have a flexible mind and outlook to deal with whatever conditions we experience.
