How to navigate off Ben Nevis Summit

The number of people summiting Ben Nevis each year is in the tens of thousands. With the increase in tourism and participation in outdoor sports, the numbers attempting to reach its summit are only set to increase. In this blog, I have tried to explain what I believe to be some of the defining factors for navigating safely off the summit of Ben Nevis.

What to pack for Scottish Winter Climbing

There is a unique winter climbing scene in Scotland where budding mountaineers attempt to scale classic and modern routes up the side of mountains in any conditions the weather throws at them. It takes a certain type of person; someone willing to get up in freezing conditions, often in the dead of the night to literally torture themselves in horrendous weather just to climb a mountain. OK, it isn’t always so bad, we are occasionally blessed with bright blue skies and crisp fluffy snow to play in – a rarity admittedly!

About Our Goal

Here at Synergy Guides, our goal is to deliver a memorable and rewarding adventure in the mountains.

By working together with our friendly and professional team, we help you create a tailored mountain challenge.

We achieve this by listening to your ambitions and encourage you to follow your dreams.

This allows us to build our mountain guiding and instruction around you. Whether that be scaling Skye’s formidable Inaccessible Pinnacle, trekking through the High Himalaya or climbing a famous Scottish ice route such as Point Five Gully

Why Us

All of our climbing instructors are professionally trained Mountaineering Instructors or British Mountain Guides.

Our compact team are all active and enthusiastic; some say obsessive, about their own climbing. We don’t run an off the shelf mountaineering course, nor do we promote inflexible mountain guiding.

The Synergy Guides guarantee is to provide you with the quality of instruction you expect.
