Join us for 3 days of rocking climbing in the mountains, exploring the Cairngorms and specifically the area’s classic rock climbs. Most of the climbs will be in the mountains and based on the list found in the book, ‘Classic Rock’. Routes such as Savage Slit (Severe ***), Talisman (HS 4a***), Squareface (VDif ***) or Clean Sweep (VS 4c***). Many of the routes are 3-star climbs with fascinating history and importance in the climbing community when they were first climbed. Some of the rock climbs are quite accessible while others are located deep in the mountains and will require some tactics to access and climb in a day. The 3 days have a big adventure spirit and will take you to some of the most impressive mountain rock climbing scenery the UK mountains have to offer.

The main aim of our 3 days together will be to maximise rock climbing, focusing on the classic rock climbs of the Cairngorms. It’s important to retain some flexibility due to weather and conditions, but at the start of the course we’ll discuss what routes we’ll be able to target over the 3 days. Other rock climbs may be used if poor weather dictates! Most of the classic climbs are in the mountains and will require good weather and long days to allow for the approach and descents.
