Winter Climbs in the Cairngorms
The Cairngorms and Creag Meagaidh
- This guide, now in its sixth edition, offers a selection
of some of the best winter routes to be found in the
Cairngorms and on Creag Meagaidh. The granite peaks of
the former have extensive areas of high plateau and four
peaks of over 4000ft, while the latter is noted for its
classic ice routes. There is superb winter climbing to be
had in this unique mountain environment.
There is a complete range of various difficulties,
lengths and styles in the guide, from straightforward
climbs to some of exceptional difficulty. Some routes are
easily accessible, others are extremely remote but all
require a solid mountaineering background.
Set in the heart of Scotland, the classic gully routes of
Lochnagar are here as are the more remote and serious
climbs on Braeriach. With something to suit all winter
climbers, the Cairngorms has it all.
