Sometimes a day here and there just doesn't cut it when learning new skills. Instead, it might be easier to do an all intensive several days, combining all the elements in several big mountain days. What's better than learning to navigate whilst ticking off classic scrambles, summiting mountains and maybe even sleeping amongst the giants themselves!

All of my course can be combined to create a great package. Below are a few of the more popular ideas, but please feel free to contact me if you fancy some other options.


COST: £300


LOCATION: Lakes/North Wales

RATIO: 1:6 for navigation / 1:4 for scrambling

An all intensive 5-day course covering all aspects of navigation and scrambling in the mountains of the UK. A great week to kick start your future as a mountaineer. 

We will cover all aspects from my INTRO TO NAVIGATION to ADVANCED NAVIGATION and INTRO TO MOUNTAIN SCRAMBLES course. Throughout the week, we will put these skills to the test by ticking off classic scrambles. By the end of the week, you will be navigating from the car park to the base of a scramble, safeguarding yourself and the group up the scramble and navigating back to the pub for a well earned pint...or two!
