Torridon is a great place for winter climbing. Just ask Ueli Steck.
The Swiss mountaineer is a superstar amongst the climbing fraternity (see the video below), dubbed the man who runs up mountains for the astonishing speed at which he skips up mountains.
Ueli Steck has just been to Torridon and thinks – thinks! – he climbed the first two pitches of Maelstrom on the Triple Buttresses of Beinn Eighe in the Coire Mhic Fherchair. “But am pretty sure we went wrong at the top,” he says.
Beinn Eighe is almost within touching distance of us at The Torridon and if you would like to follow – perhaps more slowly – in the great man’s footsteps – consider a stay at The Stables.
The Inn is perfectly set-up for winter climbers, well-used to early starts from guests intent on the nearby peaks. And when you come down off the mountains again, there is a drying room for your gear, plenty of hot water for aching limbs and fantastic traditional food and real ale to buttress the spirits.
And don’t forget, whatever your level as a winter climber, the Torridon activities team are ready to lead you safely up and down the mountains and ensure you have a great time.
