If you’ve been in the mountain environment walking and exploring and wondered what it would be like to scale some of the more direct means to the summit via rocky ridges and exposed faces then this course will give you the skills to accomplish those dreams.
Scrambling is a highly enjoyable way of getting around the mountain peaks but far away from the walkers trails. If you want to enjoy some more adventurous means of reaching summits then scrambling is for you.
This course is based in North Wales and you will go out in to the mountains and go up and down classic scrambles that Snowdonia National park offers.
With a fully qualified mountaineering and climbing instructor you will ascend ridges, gullies and faces and reach some of the highest peaks in the UK.
With an instructor to client ratio of 1:2 you will be guided in the use of ropes and rock climbing gear in order to make those more challenging lines on the mountain summits safer as well as getting plenty of mountain millage in.
The Scrambling Skills course is designed for those with some experience of walking and being in the mountains, or transferring climbing skills from indoor or outdoor rock climbing. You will do scrambles in Snowdonia National Park, with the aim of getting you ready and confident to take on those big mountains routes yourself.
There will be a fully qualified mountaineering and rock climbing instructor working with you in a 1:2 ratio to maximise time on the hill helping you learn and scramble classic big routes.
