Scrambling

Scrambling lies somewhere between hill walking and climbing, you’ll need to get your hands dirty in order to stay safe and make upward progression. However, other than a sure foot and a head for heights there is nothing to stop you taking part in a truly breath-taking and exhilarating experience. Scrambling can take you off the beaten track in no time at-all to the wildest of situations with some of the best views on offer in the mountains.

Navigation

Aspect Mountaineering is pleased to be able to offer you courses certified by the National Navigation Award Scheme. The overall aim of the courses are simple – to give lovers of the outdoors, whatever their sport, age or fitness, the freedom to explore the paths, trails, hills and mountains of Britain and abroad. Gaining an award does not give you a qualification to teach or lead. It is a recognition of the level of skill at which you can navigate.

Hill Walking

Hill walking in all its guises is to be enjoyed and cherished. Rugged Mountain tops with rocky, knife edge ridges, rolling hills with panoramic vistas, cliff top coastal paths with views across the ocean to gentle strolls through high mountain glens full of flowers and fauna. We love it all here at Aspect Mountaineering and are happy to offer wide and varied routes to be enjoyed by all. John Muir put it best when he said: “In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks.”

What our clients say

A huge thank you to Andy for taking us safely to the top of Ben Nevis and bringing us back down again during our Moonlight hike with Macmillan cancer support. What an amazing guy with a huge knowledge of his surroundings. Would highly recommend Andy to anyone who is looking for support or a guide around any of our beautiful mountains x

June Williams Kent Foods, Macmillan midnight walk on Ben Nevis

Had a fabulous trek up Ben Nevis with Andrew, we were a bunch of novices, but with help and guidance we made it!! A beautiful sunny day helped, Andrew had so much knowledge on all the views an awesome day – thank you.

Ali Richards Private guided day on Ben Nevis

Thanks again to Andy for all the help on the Yorkshire 3 Peaks challenge. He was professional, patient and good fun and really added to the day. I would definitely ask Andy to guide us on any future trips.

Andrew was a wonderful guide! Transported us to the start and motivated us to the top of Ben Nevis. He made this a truly great adventure! Highly recommend.

Sam Wilmott Private guided day on Ben Nevis

Andrew was an absolute gentleman! A great guide with lots of knowledge and a chipper attitude who kept motivating us to keep putting one foot in front of the other. He made us feel safe and gave me his coat at the top of Ben Nevis!!! Thank you for a great and challenging experience

Did you know the ruins on the summit of Ben Nevis are an old weather observatory? It was manned 7 days a week from 1883-1904, 21 years.

The tourist footpath or pony track as it was called, was used to bring pack ponies up Ben Nevis to replenish the observatory with essential supplies at a frequency of every two days.

Guided Ben Nevis walks are now live on the website www.aspectmountaineering.com 🙂

Looking forward to sharing my knowledge of the UK's highest peak, Ben Nevis. Andy, 13th January 2022 🙂

You haven’t mentioned the hotel, which is a bigger stretch of the imagination!

Whilst guiding on Ben Nevis I quite often get asked what these piles of stone are for or what they represent?

These three navigation cairns together are part of a long trail of navigation cairns leading from or to the summit of Ben Nevis and mark the change in direction to keep hill goers safe in adverse weather conditions.

Ben Nevis walks are now live on the website www.aspectmountaineering.com or get in touch to arrange a bespoke ascent of the UK's highest mountain. 🙂

Looking forward to more views like these. Andy, 12th January 2022

Today's image was taken whilst descending from the summit of Ben Nevis last year.

The picture was taken from the original footpath to the summit, it is one of the few places on Ben Nevis that offers a little solitude from the crowds so you can relax and enjoy the view. 🙂

Left to right is Sgurr a' Mhaim, Stob Ban and Mullach nan Coirean, three munros that make up part of the Mamores range. In the distance you can see all the way to Beinn a' Bheither and Bidean nam Bian, the mountains of Glencoe.

Looking forward to another season of views like these. Andy, 11th January 2022

Ben Nevis is the highest mountain within the UK and it is much more than just the highest mountain within the UK.

It has a rich history, not just for the hillwalking enthusiast. It has many graded scrambles, the North Face is home to many rock-climbs and winter-climbs with scope for many more to be added.

This picture is of the North Face of Ben Nevis was taken on an Aspect Mountaineering guided walk of the CMD Arete during 2021. Guided walks of Ben Nevis are now live on the website www.aspectmountaineering.com 🙂

Can't wait to be back on Ben Nevis. Andy, 10th January 2022 🙂

Thats all the hardware labelled ready for the coming summer season.

Group belay devices, belay devices for lead climbing, quick draws plus bolts for indoor lead climbing courses. The Edelrid Ohm to address the weight difference between climber/belayer. And finally the jumar and pully to simulate catching a falling climber.

So looking forward to putting all this kit to use! Dates for Introductory Rock & Sport Climbing Courses and Indoor Lead Climbing Courses are now live on the website www.aspectmountaineering.com more dates to follow! 😀
