Introduction to Scrambling

Introduction to Scrambling
Have you been hillwalking and wondered how to bridge the gap to grade 1 scrambling? This introduction to scrambling course helps address those skills and shows you how to safely approach mountain 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. There is no better place in the UK to have an Introduction to Scrambling. 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.

This Introduction to Scrambling course is an instructional and gudied course teaching all the skills you need to know to head out scrambling under your own steam. These will include:

  • Mountain Navigation
  • Route Choice and Guidebooks
  • Security on Steep Ground
  • Managing Safety
  • Ascending and Descend difficult steps.
  • Basic Emergency Ropework

We firmly believe that with the concentration of classic easy scrambles that Snowdonia has that there is no better place to have an introduction to scrambling course. Our inbstructors have worked extensivcely in North Wales and many deliver courses teach people to instruct in this type of terrain. As such they have a unique set of skills that goes beyond guiding people in the mountains. They can also train people to develop the skills be self-sufficent be it navigating or scrambling throuhg the moutnains.
