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 the mountains 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.

Snowdonia/The Lakes/Scotland


This 2 day course is perfect for those who want to step up their mountain walking and become a true mountaineer! Ideally, you will have experience walking in the mountains with basic navigation skills and good fitness.
