Advanced Scrambling and Mountaineering is where scrambling starts to brush against easy climbing. It needs a whole host of basic rope skills to achieve safely. On this course we will start introducing those advanced scrambling skills on some of Snowdonia's great Grade 2/3 scrambles.
Pushed up out of the prehistoric oceans, folded and twisted under massive pressure and force and then eroded by first the great Ice Ages and then the weather; the Mountains of Snowdonia are as good an alpine playground as anywhere in the UK. With soaring ridge lines and rocky buttresses there are few other places with such a wealth of world class scrambling in such a concentrated area as Snowdonia. So if you want to come and explore these areas, we can guide you on any routes that we feel are right for your level of experience, and if you wanted can teach you the mountain skills to go it alone.
There are many classic route that we regular guide clients up from North Ridge of Tryfan, Crib Coch, Bristly Ridge, North Buttress Tryfan, Llech ddu Spur, The Parsons Nose, The Dolmen Ridge, Chasm Route and many more. This advanced course focuses on grade II and above and is based on a maximum ratio of 1 to 2. It also requires a real head for heights. The routes are complex and demanding but as a result the rewards are immense. This two day course gives a mere taster of what high level scrambling is about. If you'd like to learn all the skills to become more independant then you need to book on a 5 day course.
