Smiles near the summit! 

Winter mountaineering brings a whole load of extra challenges and considerations to take account for; that doesn't it any less enjoyable though!

Actually not a bad morning to wake up to! Dartmoor can provide some challenging conditions, but also some of the most stunning views.

A very cold Tom atop a hill in the cairngorms here! We had planned on having a rest at the top, but a stiff cold wind forced us to move on sharpish!

Interested in having your own adventure? #guidebase can help.

Adventure need not be travelled for: it could be closer than you think!

An example is the extensive Trad climbing found in Avon Gorge, #Bristol. 

There are also footpaths and trails to be found in most towns!

Those nice airy summer tents may not be up to scratch in full winter conditions!

Packing uber-light can mean a long, dark, cold, damp experience and not fun at all ❄πŸ₯Άβ„ 

Better to be able to take spare layers off at night than have no more to put on!

Indoor climbing venues are great this time of year when it's cold and dark outside.

The staff are typically friendly and helpful, if you want to learn more about climbing they're great people to ask!

We at #Guidebase are big advocates for helmets when climbing, belaying and scrambling in the outdoors. Loose rock isn't a rarity on the crag!

They might seem expensive but it's a small price to pay for safety!
