Glenmore Lodge Winter Skills - Approaching a Winter Climb

We've teamed up with Glenmore Lodge for a new instructional series about decision making whilst winter climbing and mountaineering. The films aim to cover everything on what to look for when walking-in, what to take into consideration whilst gearing up, getting to the base of the crag, climbing and topping out safely.

We hope you find these instructional videos useful for learning basics and polishing up on essential skills, but they don't replace proper instruction and years of experience!

These first films focus on the approach to the climb.
