Topic - How can I get into winter climbing?

BradleyWhite - on 26 Sep 2013
Hi guys

After Christmas I would like to start climbing some winter mountain routes if the conditions are right but I don't really know where to start.

My current experience -
I climb around E1 single pitch / VS mountain routes and I have completed my SPA & ML Summer training. Last winter I climbed a few easy scrambles in the snow but at the time I didn't have technical tools or crampons.

My kit -
Sportiva Trango Evo's & BD Serac crampons.
BD Vipers & full trad rack.
Mammut Genesis half ropes.
Petzl helmet & head torch.
Emergency shelter, first aid kit and compact snow shovel.

Apologies if this subject has already been covered. Any advice or tips on getting started would be really appreciated, thank you in advance.

Many thanks
