50 of the better winter climbs accessible from the Cairngorm ski car park. A range of quick and easy routes in t'Sneachda for poor weather days and long hard routes for good weather. The routes are roughly numbered in order of severity, i.e. short routes with short walks in and out, that can be done in poor weather are at the top and at the bottom are the routes that require good conditions and weather and lot's of time to walk in/out and climb the route.
