Rich Bentley has taken the bit between his teeth to get a major social event off the ground for anyone interested in scottish Winter climbing. Should be a great chance to meet new climbing friends, catch up on old ones share a few beers and some quality chat and routes.
This coming winter Fort William is proud to host the inaugural Scottish Winter Climbing Meet. This weekend meet is being organised by local guides and instructors with the support of the Mountaineering Council of Scotland which is helping to promote the event. It is a celebration weekend of Scottish Winter climbing and gives climbers a chance to meet, chat and climb together on an informal basis. It is hoped that this will become an annual event being held at different locations each year throughout Scotland. Some of the leading lights of Scottish Winter Climbing will be around for the weekend and there will be a social evening on the saturday which will include a talk by one of Scotland's top winter climbers. The weekend is open to all whether you climb grade 'wee' or grade 'ridiculous'.
