CIC Hut Week Course Outline
Our CIC Hut Week Winter Climbing Course is based at the highest mountain hut in the British Isles, 680m above sea level, at the foot of the most extensive and challenging winter climbing cliffs anywhere in the country. They are held in March to make the most of snow and ice conditions, which have usually consolidated well by that time. This course is ideal for winter climbers with previous experience as we will mainly be operating at grades III-V. The CIC hut is the UK’s only true self-catering ‘alpine’ hut, with full drying and cooking facilities. It is well heated by gas fires, so is a cosy place in the evenings. It also has two composting toilets.
