The North Ridge of Tryfan, a classic grade 1 scramble in Snowdonia

Step up your hill walking on an introduction to scrambling course in Snowdonia or the Lake District!

- - -

Do you have a head for heights and exposure?  If so, then read on! Scrambling in Snowdonia or any other mountain region offers a new set of challenges and skills to master. Sometimes, just finding the start of the scramble can be the hardest part of the day! And once committed, retreat is often very difficult. But the challenge and excitement of venturing away from the footpath and picking your own line up through the rocks makes for an amazing adventure in the mountains.

This 2 day scrambling course in Snowdonia or the Lake District is perfect for those who want to step up their mountain walking and become a true mountaineer! Scrambling in the mountains takes you into more complex and steep terrain, meaning a good head for heights and a new set of mountaineering skills is required. Ideally, you will have experience walking in the mountains with basic navigation skills and good fitness.

The course is spread over two days as it gives you time to consolidate your skills and maximise your time in the mountains. If you would prefer just a one day course, please feel free to get in touch!

Both days are full on mountain days on a classic scramble covering the following skills:

Day 1: 

  • Navigation

  • Movement techniques over steep ground

  • Guidebook interpretation

  • Route choice

  • Safeguarding yourself and members of the group

Day 2:

  • Consolidating the skills learnt from day 1

  • Tick off a Classic Scramble!
