Mountaineering

Activity

Where exactly scrambling ends and mountaineering begins is a bit of grey area. For the purposes of this website, any trips involving the use of ropes (with the exception of lake crossings), glacier travel, or the use of an ice axe and/or crampons on terrain where the ability to quickly self-arrest is essential will be included in this category. While many of the destinations listed here may be traditionally considered as scrambles, conditions and timing can easily make them into more challenging propositions.
