Winter Climbing - go steeper
Technical climbing in the winter with all the challenges that involves! It need not be super steep and scary, perhaps simply a progression from mountaineering terrain onto graded winter routes. Steep and scary is avialable for those that wish! For the more experienced I can deliver development training and coaching for efficiency and performance.
Am I ready?
Previous experience of winter walking and some summer rock climbing, even if very simple, are really important for this..
