Winter Climbs Cairngorms
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.
