Ben Vorlich and Stuc a Chroin are two classic mountains in the Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park at Loch Earn.

In this colder season we'll target the North and East facing slopes that offer our best chance of finding snow cover to exercise our Winter skills.

As well as enjoying a challenging day out we will actively seek opportunities to practice essential Winter equipment safety skills.

Stats:

       Ben Vorlich 985m (Munro)

       Stuc a Chroin 972m (Munro)

Total ascent: 1145m

In order to be accepted for this event you should already be a fit, confident and experienced Summer mountaineer who is keen to extend their skills into Winter mountains. Previous Winter experience will be bonus.

All participants will need to come equiped with ice axe and crampons previously test fitted to appropriate boots. Please read the 'what to bring' section carefully paying particular attention to cold weather gear requirements that are essential to safe outings in challenging Winter conditions. Full water and windproof outer garments, winter hats and gloves (plus spares), face coverings and ski goggles are just the starting point.
