Driesh and Mayar winter ascent

Date: 2nd December 2017

Price: £30.00

Saturday 2nd December 2017 at 0830. A level 3 walk of about 15k taking between 6 and 8 hours.

Driesh and Mayar are accessed from the end of the public road in Glen Clova. We will begin our day on the old hill track known as Jock's Road then into the beautiful Corrie Fee before ascending onto the Cairngorm Plateau and making our way, firstly to Mayar then the 3 km east to Driesh, before descending down the spur known as the Shank of Drumfollow and back to the car park.

Given the time of year this is very likely going to be a winter mountaineering day and you will need to be prepared with crampons, ice axe, head torch and goggles, as well as appropriate clothing and adequate food\water. See the 'What do I need?' page on the website for more information. Please also be aware that winter mountaineering requires a higher level of fitness than summer hillwalking. Contact me in advance of the day if you have any questions.

B2 boots, ice axe and crampons can be hired from outdoor shops such as Tiso and Nevisport.

We will meet at the public car park at the Glen Doll Ranger Station, DD8 4RD at 0830 for a weather and kit check before moving to the start of the walk.

Cost is only £30 per person (maximum group size is 6)
