The Big Winter Climb (26-27 November)
Our Big Winter Climb weekend is made up of a series of opt-in workshops covering a diverse range of winter climbing and mountaineering skills and techniques, with something to suit absolutely everyone. It's a great way to consolidate your existing skills, develop your experience and boost your confidence for the coming winter climbing season.
A programme of interactive workshops and inspirational lectures spans the entire weekend, allowing you to select what topics suit you best from a 'workshop menu', ensuring an individually tailored experience.
Supporting the workshops will be the 'Expert's Corner', where you will be able to quiz some of the country's most experienced climbers to make sure you get as much as you possibly can from the weekend.
All of this for just £160, including two nights accommodation, all your food, world class coaching and tuition and guest speaker on Saturday night. Perfect timing in the run up to what is surely going to be the best winter ever, it's just too good to miss!
As well as all this superb instruction, everyone attending the course gets a bulging goody bag full of outdoor kit, including:
