Glencoe is a classic mountain location and one of my personal favourites having cut both my Summer and Winter mountaineering teeth here.

The main routes here face North and East and keep their snow in condition longer than many in other areas. We'll make the most of this, choosing our routes and summits in the week before the event based on snow conditions, weather and the experience of participants. Be prepared for a challenging day out, making the most of the available Winter conditions and taking in major Glencoe summits.

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 Winter skills. Ideally you will have previous Winter experience.

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.

Please message the event leader if you have queries about this event or your suitability for it. The exact nature of activities on offer will be dictated by the weather conditions on the day.

Dogs: This event is not suitable for dogs.
