Description

This mountaineering course in Sierra Nevada is designed so that climbers can become confident and independent mountaineers! 

Enjoying the mountain during the winter in total safety requires more knowledge and skills than during the summer. This one-day program will make it possible for participants to improve their climbing techniques and to progress through snow-covered mountain terrain.

During this course, you will learn the following:

  • Basic equipment for winter mountaineering

  • Progression techniques on snow-covered terrain

  • Handling of ice axes and crampons

  • Self-arrest techniques

  • Rope belaying techniques

  • Knowledge and prevention of hazards

  • Notions about avalanche prevention and avalanche

What a better way to improve your climbing skills than in this Spanish winter paradise! At the end of the day, with these acquired techniques, climbers will be able to perform safely on their own on the mountains during the winter time.

If you want to join me on this 1-day mountaineering course, request to book this trip!

If you wish to do another activity in Sierra Nevada, you can also join me on this Mulhacen (3482 meters) 2-day guided ascent.

Fantastic winter ascent of Mulhacen together with guide Mariano Frutos in mid-January. Very warm and sunny day and extremely icy on the top but fantastic views all the way to the Moroccan Rif mountains. Few people on the mountain and a lot of Iberian mountain goats. Mariano was excellent and Pablo at Explore-Share made the logistics easy and straightforward as always.
