WINTER SKILLS COURSE

GLENCOE & BEN NEVIS: SCOTLAND

17 to 22 February 2019

Some say that the Himalaya is good training for a Scottish winter.

Join Entabeni in February 2019 for an introduction into winter skills

in the area known as the home of Scottish mountaineering. Starting

on Stob Coire nan Lochan and, weather dependent, ending on Ben

Nevis, the highest point of the British Isles; this course provides the

fundamentals to safely move through technical ground in winter

mountainous environments. Aligned to the South African MDT

Mountain Leader syllabus, participants will gain many of the skills

and most of the logbook days required for the attainment of

Mountain Leader

Programme Outline

The valley (glen) of Glencoe is iconic in winter mountaineering.  The mountains are reasonably accessible and almost always in  peak condition in February, so good winter climbing is almost  guaranteed. Participants will be collected in Glasgow (train station  or airport) and driven to Fort William. The next morning, we will  head into Broad Gully on Stob Coire nan Lochan, for an  introductory day covering the basics, including avalanche  awareness and self-arrest. There is an option of a Grade 1 winter  climb on Dorsal Arrête on this day. Day 2 – 5 will be based on  Glencoe, Ben Nevis (Carn Mor Dearg Arete), Ballachulish, and  other Munroes in the area, depending on conditions and  avalanche risk on the day. A typical day departs the accommodation at 07:00 to return at  about 18:00; both in the dark. Depending on the conditions, we  will spend a night in a snow-hole we have constructed. The days  are very physical, and a high level of fitness is required. Each  participant must provide their own equipment to the appropriate  standard and be able to manage themselves in a cold mountain  environment.

Group walks up Ben Nevis every Wednesday and Sunday from the start of May to the end of September. Your chance to join a group and together with your guide, climb to the summit at 1344 metres (4411 feet). Based in Fort William and only using local guides, you won't just climb Ben Nevis, you'll learn all about the mountain and the wildlife, geology and history it has to offer. The pub at the end of the path is a great place to finish the day with a well earned pint!

Please note that for walks in early May winter boots, crampons and walking axes may be required if there is still snow on the mountain. This kit can be hired at an additional cost from Ellis Brigham in Fort William and we will advise guests as early as possible if it will be required.

Not only is Ben Nevis the highest point in the UK but it is home to some of the rarest plants in the UK and has always played a central role in the development of mountaineering across the world. Don't just climb Ben Nevis, discover more as you learn all about it's history, geology, flora and fauna!

If you are reasonably fit and conditions are good you should be able to walk up Ben Nevis in a walk of six to eight hours - but you should never take it lightly. Good planning and preparation are vital - conditions can change dramatically even in the best weather.

The Mountain Path starts in Glen Nevis and is around 16km (10 miles) there and back. It climbs 1,300m and is a full mountain walking experience which requires sturdy boots and good equipment. There can be snow patches on the route until July or August and the summit is regularly 9C colder than at sea level. So if it is a warm 18C in Fort William it might be a cold 9C on top with wind chill making it feel much colder.
