Two climbers are seeking to match a legendary ice-climbing feat achieved on Ben Nevis in 1960.
Robin Smith and Jimmy Marshall managed to climb six winter routes on Britain's highest mountain in winter conditions, the first men to do so.
Dave MacLeod and Andy Turner are seeking to copy this achievement next month, with the attempt being recorded on camera for the Fort William Mountain Festival, which runs from February 11th to 15th.
The derring-do of Smith and Marshall is renowned partly because it was accomplished without modern climbing gear
Climbers who want to stock up equipment, such as a belay device
or climbing rope
, may wish to do so by visiting their nearest Go Outdoors store.
The film of MacLeod and Turner in action is one of several to be shown at the event.
Visitors to the event can also attend lectures and take part in winter mountaineering skills courses.
