/ Winter Climbing Feb 4th to the 10th
I have holiday from the 4th to the 10th of Feb and fancied getting out to the mountains to do some winter climbing. I have all the gear (B3 Boots, C2 Crampons, 1 Walking Axe and warm clothing etc...) minus half ropes as I only have a 60m single. Iíve been rock climbing for over a year but really want to get some winter climbing under my belt.
I can drive up to the Lake District from where I live but wondered if anyone is brave enough to go winter climbing with a complete beginner, Even if it is only for a few days?
Even anyone with suggestions of good clubs I can go to would be great info.
Message me if you can.
Get in touch if you're interested, staying in Kinlochleven too :)
I'm going to Scotland with a mate, date yet tbc but prob late Feb/early March... however I'll be going from Dorset as well (Christchurch).
Happy to have a tag-along if all else fails for you.
