If you're a summer hillwalker and you're interested in learning how to move over steep ground safely, this is the ideal course for you. You'll spend five days learning how to reach places which require a little more judgement about terrain than you currently possess. Our highly qualified instructors will teach you how to choose routes wisely and get the most out of steep terrain. By the end of the week you'll have traversed some of Snowdonia's classic rocky ridges, with us helping you every step of the way.
You should be more confident about hillwalking in steeper places and keen to begin undertaking your own scrambling journeys
* Please note: Itinerary is subject to weather and availability.
