The Objectives

This course will help you with route selection, movement skills, route finding and look at the equipment required for scrambling. After a couple of days of largely un-roped scrambling where judgment and movement skills dominate we will tie onto ropes and introduce some climbing equipment so that we can search out some of the classic grade two and three scrambles of Snowdonia. With your Instructor in the lead you’ll safely be able to see what is required to manage safety on this tricky terrain. Those of you with climbing experience may even get a go on the sharp end yourselves.


* Please note: Itinerary is subject to weather and availability.

What to Expect

The first two days of this course are spent on a 1:4 ratio and will be spent scrambling, largely un-roped in the mountains learning skills of movement, route finding and exploring how the decision making process leads to making good judgements in scrambling terrain. The next three days will be spent on a 1:2 ratio undertaking roped scrambles in the mountains. You will need to be ready to spend all five days ‘on the hill’. We'll tailor the course to best suit your needs, whether that's more instruction or just getting out there for more experience under our guidance.

Experience Required

You should have some scrambling or rock climbing experience and a good level of hillwalking fitness
