The Objectives

This intensive course makes full use of the week, with a mixture of classroom•based and practical outdoor sessions. Our course staff have many years of Alpine experience between them and will guide you through the following topics:| | Alpine areas, travel, guide books and maps| Navigation and route choice| Glacier travel and crevasse rescue| The choice and use of Alpine equipment and rope techniques| Alpine weather| Hazards| Alpine huts| Lightweight bivi skills


* Please note: Itinerary is subject to weather and availability.

Given the nature of this course, venues and day-to-day activities are weather and snow-dependent and decisions regarding the exact day's programme will be decided by the course director each morning. The whole group will meet for a morning briefing on both days, allowing you to share the decision-making process with experienced instructors.

Experience Required

To get the most from this course, you will need some experience of mountaineering and/or climbing in the UK in summer and winter, where basic ropework and snowcraft (you should already be able to walk in crampons and use an ice axe) has been learnt.
