i guess ill start with my short climbing history so my question be better understood.
im a intermediate alpine climber and sport climber comfort zone is ad+ climbed d+(e.g. kuffner ridge ,innominata)
sport 5.10b/c, trad 5.7, ice follow WI 4 rarely got to lead.
I've done 2 courses in the alps and trad course in Jordan, three seasons in europe also s.america big technicals(artesunraju, alpamayo,ilampu etc..)
also light climbing in the cascades, all independent and all summer seasons and i guess that's where i am right now, looking to progress.
I've always admired Scottish winter climbing and thought would be a great spot for my first winter course entailing more trad ,WI, and mixed.
the need to progress and leave comfort zone goes hand in hand with exposure bad weather and route finding problems therefore what i really need is an opinion:
a)go to the highlands for about 2-3 weeks for a intensive 10 day course and if so what to ask for? which guiding agencies are recommended? And what to look foreword to?
b)go to chamonix a place i know very well but not in winter for a whole month where i can do a week long winter course in the aiguille rouge than ski some more and learn proper winter approach and rescue, after the course there are many objectives worth looking at.
my question is not as coherent as i wanted it so again, winter course given my stats where to go and what is most nessacery to learn in winter season + recommendations on all logistical fastens.
if this wont go ill probably head to vadi ram in Jordan and practice more trad than go in the summer to chamonix
