Alpine Preparation and Training Courses

Prepare for your Alpine trip with our training course on Dartmoor, Devon

A one day course designed to prepare you with some solid skills if your heading to the Alps for a summer trip.

Especially suited to ascents such as the Matterhorn, Eiger and other AD ridge climbs. This is a highly practical course, and tailored to your ability and ambitions. We concentrate on basic ropework and movement skills on rocky terrain.

Based on Dartmoor in Devon, we use the Dewerstone Rock Climbing area which has a number of very good climbs to practice “big boot” climbing skills as well as some easier scrambling routes, both in ascent and descent...

Meeting point:

Shaugh Prior car park at 8.30. Google map link here. After an introduction talk and gear check we get right down to business, the first scramble is a short walk from the car park and takes us to the “summit” of the Dewerstone. Then it’s a downhill walk/scramble to the first rock climbing area.

Final days skiing in Iran. A great couple of skis here with sunshine and a lot of powder. Some of the best #skitour days I’ve ever done.

On the lower slopes of Damavand, the highest peak in Iran.
Some pretty wild weather occasionally, but good to be out. We ended up skinning a 1000m before picking our way down through the gullies back to the car.

The weather for tomorrow looks ace, so looking forward to a big day.
