Scrambling is the middle ground between hill walking and rock climbing. The last ice age has left the British mountains with signs of it's existence in the form of ridges and broken rocky buttresses. With a head for heights and sure footing, what better way to explore these amazing features than to get hands on and let the adrenaline flow!

1 Day
North Wales/The Lakes/Scotland

You have seen the iconic images: The cannon on Tryfan, the knife edge ridges of Crib Goch and Sharp edge, the sweeping ridge line of Striding edge, and you have been transfixed ever since. But have you lacked the confidence to tackle them yourself? I know it's intimidating, but it doesn't have to be. Stepping up your adventures in the mountains takes another level of confidence and commitment. And what better way to enjoy these classic scrambles than with a qualified mountain leader, to help build your confidence and enjoy a full on mountain day!
