Scrambling is a great way to enjoy the mountains where narrow ridges and steep gullies can be included into a walk to give a more adventurous day out. For many the thrill of pushing off the beaten track onto steeper ground is where the fun in the mountains really begins.
Our Introduction To Scrambling course is aimed at the hillwalker who is confident walking in the mountains but looking to learn the skills needed to move onto steeper ground where a rope is not required, but a good range of skills and techniques are.
During the course we will cover.
- Planning your route and choosing the appropriate scramble
- Guide books
- Weather and how it effects our decisions
- Movement over rock
- How to safeguard yourself and others
The route will be selected by your instructor on the day based on group experience and weather forecast. Previous courses have included – Ddear Ddu ridge, Glyders , Lliwedd, Tryfan and Crib Goch (Crib Goch only in perfect weather with a strong group)
