Get ready for your alpine adventures at one of our Montane BMC Alpine Skills Lectures this May
Who can go? The Alpine Lectures are brilliant for anybody new to alpine climbing who want to further develop their skills. You’ll go from bumbling about to striding with confidence to the summit after you’ve gained all the knowledge from our alpine experts Steve Long and Calum Muskett.
25-year-old Calum discovered climbing when he was 13. He’s travelled all over the world climbing difficult alpine routes as well as free climbing big walls such as El Capitan in Yosemite. Calum is an aspirant British Mountain Guide.
International Mountain Guide Steve has been mountaineering for over 30 years and has climbed in every continent and skied in most. Highlight ascents include the Dru in winter, Cerro Torre, Low’s Gully (Borneo), and an epic attempt on Great Trango.
So what skills will you learn about?
Everything the new alpine adventurer could possibly need, including:
Effective movement/glacial travel
What’s more, there’ll be loads of Montane goodies up for grabs in the free prize draw to tool you up!
