Summer Expedition

Moving through the mountains with everything you need to be self sufficient in your pack is a wonderful experience, whether its the Tour de Mont Blanc, Volcanic landscape of Iceland or multi day Scottish adventures. Being able to strike camp, have a good meal and rest under the stars is one thing we at ClimbAxe Mountaineering never get tired of.

Summer Expedition aims to give you the foundation skills required to wild camp confidently and responsibly and to be able to build on them for your future adventures. Summer Expedition is based over a two day one night mountain journey in the Snowdonia National Park, during this period the skills and techniques are delivered in an informal, informative and fun way and maybe the odd game of cards or spooky ghost story thrown in!!
