The first SCC meet of 2023 will be the Winter meet.

Who?

This meet is suitable for all willing to take on the winter mountain experience. Some hill walking fitness is required and there is certain gear you cannot do without but can be borrowed / hired.

What?

This meet is very open and there is a huge range of activities available.

From low level walking, to hill walking, to exposed ridge traverses, to grade I and II gully climbing to gnarly grade III and above mixed and ice climbing there is something for everyone on this trip. Oh, and sometimes skiing / snowboarding….

As the title says this is a winter trip and it is in the mountains. As such certain skills are required and it will be cold, wet, claggy, icy, and sunny, sometimes all in the same day.

We will be offering training, for at least ‘Winter Skills’ level as we have in the past. This is for those who have little experience in the winter mountains and need to learn. If there is interest we will also organise training for the more experienced.

In the past we have had between 15 – 20 people attend the winter meet so we will be looking at accommodation number for this many.

Where?

The location will likely be the Cairngorms mountain range in Scotland which is a bit friendlier, but still within driving range of more serious mountains for those interested.

When?

We are looking at the week of 18th – 25th February 2023 but it is possible this will change if we cannot find appropriate accommodation for the numbers interested. Please note these dates are not confirmed until stated here and sign ups open.
