Matterhorn North Face

Zermatt, Switzerland

With over 1,000 metres prominence and towering improbably over Zermatt, the Matterhorn was first ascended in 1865 by a team led by British alpinist Edward Whymper. It wasn't until 1931, however, that its imposing north face was ascended.

September - March

Whymper Couloir

Mont Blanc Massif, France

Generations of the best steep skiers in Chamonix have tested their mettle on the Aiguille Verte, and there are now five legendary steep ski descents starting from the summit of the Verte, covering each of its sides.

February - May

Orion Direct

Ben Nevis, Scotland

Weaving up the north face of Ben Nevis via a sustained and intricate line, Orion Direct was a route ahead of its time when first ascended in 1960. Alpine in scale but unmistakably Scottish in experience.

February - April

Cuillin Ridge in Winter

Isle of Skye, Scotland

In summer, a traverse of Skye's Cuillin Ridge is a sought after trophy, demanding perfect alignment of weather, fitness, technical skill and partners. A winter traverse is a different proposition entirely.

December - March

Dru North Face

Mont Blanc Massif, France

The Aiguille du Dru is the poster child of the Mont Blanc massif, with its steep weather-beaten north wall presenting a formidable objective. It’s one of the most prized of alpine north face routes.

Year round

Cuillin Ridge

Isle of Skye, Scotland

The Skye Cuillin in north-west Scotland are home to one of the longest technical ridge traverses. Exposed, committing and alpine in style, this is the UK’s most prized ridge route.

May - September

The Mallory Route

Chamonix, France

For those with the courage and skills to tackle its wildly exposed lines, the legendary North Face of the Aiguille du Midi is a unique and peerless playground. Nowhere else in the world is it possible to find lift-served skiing of this nature.

April - June

Eiger North Face

Bernese Oberland, Switzerland

The north face of The Eiger is notorious. Its name alone resonates far beyond the circles of climbers and mountaineers. It evokes a sense of danger and forbidding, unmatched by any other mountain.

Spring / Autumn

Point Five Gully

Ben Nevis, Scotland

The most famous ice climb in Scotland, and possibly in the world, is reliable, popular and brilliant. It’s one of the most sought-after Scottish winter climbs, attracting international climbers, with Point Five as their sole objective.

November - April

Vallée Blanche

Chamonix, France

The Vallée Blanche is one of the world’s most famous off-piste descents, and deservedly so. At 22km long, it's an impressive descent through massive glacial terrain, with multiple variations possible.

January - April

Eiger West Flank

Bernese Oberland, Switzerland

Arguably the most famous alpine face in the world, it has a fearsome reputation among climbers for being steep, dangerous and subject to temperamental weather.

March - May

Arête du Diable

Mont Blanc du Tacul, France

The Arête du Diable is the showpiece ridge of the south face of Mont Blanc du Tacul. Graded D+, it’s an 800m ridge traverse that tackles some of the most spectacular Chamonix terrain.

June - September
