Winter Climbs in the Cairngorms

The Cairngorms and Creag Meagaidh

A practical guidebook to the best winter climbing routes in the Cairngorms, on Creag Meagaidh noted for its classic ice climbs, Lochnagar and Braeriach. Routes include a wide range of grades, lengths and styles, from straightforward to exceptionally difficult. Scottish winter climbing is world renowned for its adventure and quality of experience.

In three separate sections, the northern and southern areas of the Cairngorms National Park as well as the peak of Creag Meagaidh to the west of the main range, this guidebook offers a selection of some of the best winter climbing routes to be found in this beautiful mountain environment in the heart of Scotland.

The granite peaks of the Cairngorms have extensive areas of high plateau and four peaks over 4000ft, while Creag Meagaidh is noted for its classic ice climbs. The guide also covers the well-known routes on the magnificent cliffs of Lochnagar and Creag an Dubh Loch, as well as the more remote and serious climbs on the corries of Braeriach and Beinn a'Bhuird.

The major climbing venues of the Cairngorms have some of the finest winter routes in Britain. Some are easily accessible, others extremely remote, but the climbing is always superb. From long, varied routes to short, technical tests and a range of pure ice climbs as well as mixed routes to rival any others in the country, the Cairngorms is an exceptional range with something to suit all winter climbers.
