Bespoke Guiding & Instruction From Ice Factor

Have a very specific route or day in mind? Perfect! For over a decade Ice Factor has provided bespoke Private Guiding and instruction on rock routes, ice climbing and winter routes, special crag venues and remote expeditions.

We understand many climbers don’t have the time to commit to a full course. Equally there are those who finish a refresher course and want to get their teeth into more challenging ground. Private Guiding gives you the flexibility to add days, work around your diary and focus purely on your requirements.

Many students opt for the weekend refresher course, followed by 2 days of private guiding. This gives you a thorough refresher/ understanding of the essential safety issues, whilst the remainder is focused utterly on your personal wish list. Private guiding with the Ice Factor allows you to pick and choose the days/dates and course objectives.

For many, this is simply extending the Long Weekend Introductory Courses, for others it’s a single day with a single objective – e.g Traverse of the Aonach Eagach Ridge – II/III.

With the burgeoning growth in winter climbing, we increasingly get requests from university and Mountaineering Clubs, looking for a specific set of objectives at a date to suit – this may be training new club members, before joining a wider group on a challenging traverse, or a very specific itinerary.

To enquire please call the centre on 01855 831 100 or complete the enquiry form below.

Can’t find a date or time to suit?

Have a great day. We look forward to hearing from you!
