BEN NEVIS

The North Face of 'the Ben' is home to a number of classic ridge scrambles. The most well known is Tower Ridge and this is a staple in our guiding calendar. 

For most, tackling just one of the ridges on Ben Nevis is a lifetime achievement and for others the goal is to climb all five. North East Buttress (V. Diff), Observatory Ridge (V. Diff), Tower Ridge (Diff), Ledge Route (Grade 1/2), and Castle Ridge (Mod). 

We offer guided scrambles on all of the ridges on Ben Nevis. Get in touch to book your Ben Nevis mountaineering adventure.

SKYE & THE CUILLIN RIDGE 

The Isle of Skye is host to some of the best, and most challenging, mountaineering terrain in the UK. For this reason they are a sought after prize for any climber, mountaineer and hill walker.

MOUNTAINEERING INSTRUCTION

These courses are aimed at those wanting to develop the skills to look after themselves and their climbing/mountaineering partners in steep, rocky ground. They are recommended for those who have some scrambling experience and want to take on more technical scrambles which require the use of a rope to protect difficult and exposed sections of routes. 

This course covers: - planning a mountaineering day (including weather, route choice, and navigation), using the rope for ascent and descent, using traditional protection (nuts, cams and hexes), building anchors and belays, and emergency procedures.

Maximum group size 2. 

1 day + (discounts available for multiple day bookings)
