Private Guiding

Eiger Mittelegi ridge fixed ropesOur Advanced Alpine Mountaineering holidays and Guided Climbs require greater prior experience of rock and/or snow-ice climbing. They can follow on from one of our Intermediate Mountaineering courses or from a good experience of personal technical climbing on home hills. There is a big step up in difficulty from easier PD snow climbs to more technical AD and D level mixed routes. Neat efficient climbing technique on tricky and exposed terrain is demanded. Full instruction is given in the more advanced rope-work and technical skills required; good general mountain fitness is essential.

Technical level: snow slopes up to 55 degrees, snow/ice faces up to 75 degrees, rock scrambling/climbing of Alpine grade III/IV, UK Severe/VS level, exposed narrow ridges.; Scottish winter grades II to III; Alpine grades PD+, AD and D.

To find out about the fitness and technical skills required for our courses and guided peaks and to find suitable preparatory courses see our fitness and course pre-requirements page.
