Scottish International Winter Climbing Meet - 2020

The Scottish Winter Climbing Meet has been a highlight on the climbing calendar for 20 years and has attracted climbers from across the world eager to experience the unique Scottish winter experience. The meet has been running since 1997 and was last held in 2016, when it was hosted by The British Mountaineering Council.

Description

Overseas guests will be paired up with experienced UK-based hosts - an excellent formula that has proved to be very successful in the past. In return for sharing their local knowledge and expertise, UK climbers gain a wider perspective by climbing with their international visitors. In previous years many hosts and guests have formed strong partnerships that have gone on to make major ascents further afield and in the Greater Ranges.
Beginning in Aviemore on Saturday February 22 2020, the week-long event will be delivered in close partnership with the British Mountaineering Council, the Alpine Club and the Scottish Mountaineering Club and will be part of a programme of events and activities in 2020 to celebrate 50 years of Mountaineering Scotland.
The format will be different to previous years. The event will start and finish in Aviemore, but instead of being based in a single location, climbers will rotate between climbing huts, and all participants will spend at least one night in the CIC Hut on Ben Nevis. The event will finish with a celebration event in Aviemore on Friday February 29 that will be open to everyone in the Scottish winter climbing community.
Streap Alba Geamhradh means Climb Scotland Winter in the Scottish Gaelic language.
