“Big Hex" – a large hexcentric or nut used as protection when jammed into a crack in a rockface”.
Big Hex is a mountain challenge with a difference!
We challenge you to climb and descend 3 of Scotland’s most outstanding mountain ranges, via the most exciting ridges and buttresses, all within a 36, 48 or 72 hour timeframe.
And in doing so, raise cash for the Scottish Mountain Rescue Teams who we can rely on to help us when we need them!
In brief, Big Hex is a challenge for any scrambler or climber interested in taking in 3 classic Scottish Mountain Ranges over a couple of days – or quicker if you think you can!
The routes take in Pinnacle Ridge on The Skye Cuillin, West Ridge (Sgurr Nan Gillean), North East Buttress and Tower Ridge on Ben Nevis and North Buttress and Curved Ridge on Buachaille Etive Mor in Glen Coe.
All you have to do, is register with us, pledge a guaranteed sponsored donation of at least £250.00 per team of 2, and you will be given a mutually agreed date to begin your Big Hex challenge.
When you complete it, you and your time will be listed on our “Wall of Fame” League Table, you will receive a Big Hex Completionist certificate and have the opportunity to post your photos on the Big Hex Website for posterity.
But more importantly, as a climber, you will have raised funds for a fabulous cause.
