Winter Mountaineering

Winter Mountaineering is a discipline of climbing that requires the use of specific ice climbing tools and gear to facilitate upward progression of a chosen route. Encompassing many of the skills required for other disciplines of climbing, QUB Mountaineering Club members can learn all the skills required for Winter Mountaineering in under a year.

Described by many as “Type 2 Fun,” Winter Mountaineering is considered enjoyable in retrospect. Early starts, long days and cold weather make Winter Mountaineering a physically demanding discipline of climbing. However, as with all aspects to climbing and mountaineering, by putting the effort in the rewards are truly great.
