Winter Climbing

Ice and Mixed Climbing

Winter climbing is one of Twid’s favourite passions. Whether it be hanging off some steep frozen Alpine cascade, torquing his axes up a mixed climb in Scotland or strapped to a big North face in the Alps he loves it. Its the ultimate blend of adventure, excitement and technical wizardry. All of Twid’s winter trips are bespoke in that way you get the best ice and venue that suits you. ‘Pull hard and live dangerously!

General Programme

The team will generally discuss the venue and proposed climb the night before with the help of local weather and avalanche forecasts. The main aim is to climb as much ice as possible on single or multi pitch routes.

Its also possible to venture highup into Mountains and climb North Faces. Ice faces and Gully climbs do require a good level of fitness so expect to be reasonably fit. Approaching climbs can be by walking, snow shoe or by ski.

Any trips include the following: Overview of all rope work; Avalanche training; Use of weather and Avalanche bulletins; Use of snowshoes or skis; Coaching for movement on ice;Supervised leading if required; Use of Guide books
