Winter Climbing - Scotland

24th - 26th February 2012

This meet was organised by Steve Fletcher and was suitable for newcomers to winter climbing. Steve had the assistance of Jason King who was involved in Steve's recent trip to Nepal. Jason is a lecturer in the outdoors at Leeds Met University and has climbed and guided in a number of places around the world. He is happy to impart to us his knowledge of winter climbing, including rope work, building belays, ice axe arrest, and avalanche conditions assessment.

The meet was limited to around 6 to 8 people.
