Uisdean started climbing at the age of 19 whilst doing his joinery apprenticeship and quickly developed into one of Scotland’s most accomplished active winter climbers.

Uisdean has developed a passion for thin ice and has excelled in this style of climbing. Over the past three seasons he has racked up a number of significant repeats and first ascents in Scotland as well as climbing a number of north faces in the Alps and Canadian Rockies.

Scottish winter climbing and big mountain routes have become his main focus. 2017 is set to be a busy year for Uisdean with expeditions to Patagonia, the Alps and potentially The Himalaya in summer, as well as scaling the Scottish mountains. During his trips Uisdean will be testing out equipment from Primus, including the award-winning Lite+ and OmniFuel II stoves, Power and Winter Gas, cooking accessories and TrailBreak Ex Vacuum flasks.
