Join us on a mountain skills course spread over several days, possibly 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 among the giants themselves! Why not combine a scrambling course in the Lake District with some Wainwright walks? Or a Wild Camp as part of a navigation course on Dartmoor?
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.
NAVIGATION AND SCRAMBLING
North Wales/The Lakes/Scotland
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.
