Overview

Guidebook to the best winter climbing routes around Scotland's Ben Nevis and Glen Coe. All the buttresses, ridges and gullies on the NE face of Ben Nevis, Carn Dearg, Aonachs Mor and Beag, the Mamores, Glencoe, Aonach Dubh, Bidean nam Bian, Coire Gabhail, Buchaille Etive Mor, Glen Etive and Stob a'Ghlais Choire. 960 routes, 89 photo topos. The peaks of Glen Coe and the surrounding mountains give some of the best snow and ice climbing anywhere in Europe, when the conditions are right with climbers coming from as far afield as Poland, Australia, France, Italy and the US. It's justifiably a good 'tick' on any discerning world traveller's itinerary and access to the crags has greatly improved in recent years. Many of the routes are longer than experienced anywhere else in British hills and of alpine-like seriousness. Essential for all winter climbers.
