Streap Alba Geamhradh 2020 is now live!
Streap Alba Geamhradh 2020, the International Scottish Winter Climbing Meet, from 22nd to 29th February, will see international guests teaming up with UK climbers to climb classic routes, technical test-pieces and possibly brand new first ascents, getting a taste of the unique delights of winter climbing in Scotland.
Nearly 30 guests from 22 different countries will be attending the week-long event, including veterans of Everest and the Greater Ranges, as well as leading Alpinists. All abilities are represented, with climbers from Israel and South Africa, who have little opportunity to climb snow and ice in their own countries, through to regular winter climbers from Europe, Scandinavia and North America. Host climbers from the UK have been selected to match the abilities of the International guests.
The Winter Climbing Meet is being run by Mountaineering Scotland in close partnership with the Alpine Club, the Scottish Mountaineering Club and the British Mountaineering Council, and is sponsored by Salewa, manufacturers of mountaineering clothing and equipment.
