Description

Planning a mountaineering adventure to the Alps or some other exotic mountain destination? Then head out to the United Kingdom first for some Alpine training across multiple locations!

From Scotland’s Cairngorms to the lovely English Lake District and stunning Snowdonia in Wales, we can head out to any of these spectacular locations to build up your skill set and make some excellent ascents.

Each of these three spots is a veritable playground for climbing and we’re sure to have a blast wherever we go.

Depending on your skills, how long you have to spend climbing and your preferences, we will tailor the perfect itinerary that best prepares you for your next trip.

These are just a few of the things we’ll try to go over during our time together:

  • General rope maintenance, taking rope coils and rope work
  • Body belays, selecting and using direct belays
  • Rock protection
  • Route finding and navigation
  • Descending and abseiling
  • How to prusik
  • Crevasse rescue training
  • Ice axe and crampon techniques (only available during the winter)

So what are you waiting for? Book now for an informative and intense 1+ day Alpine training experience in Scotland’s Cairngorms, England’s Lake District or Snowdonia in Wales!

If you like the look of this trip then I think you will also enjoy my 4-day scrambling traverse of Cuillin Ridge on the Isle of Skye!

About the guide

I am the owner at Rock n Ridge and have spent over 20 years enjoying the mountains of the UK & Europe. I hold the Mountain Instructors Award (MIA) which is the highest ‘summer’ outdoor qualification in the UK. Paul also holds the Winter Mountain Leader qualification, and has qualifications in Mountain Biking, Canoeing & is a Pilates instructor.

I am passionate about my work and find that I can easily build rapport with people. I decided to set up Rock n Ridge in 2017 for my love and passion of the outdoors, as well as the fun and enjoyment of sharing that love with others.
