Our advanced scrambling course is for the competent hillwalker who has done some Grade I scrambles. Once completed, you will have the tools to take on the more advanced scrambles (Grades II & III) and support others on the journey.
On the Advanced Scrambling Course, we will cover the following areas:
- Using different forms of protection
- The use of a rope
- Rope management
- Efficient movement
- Developing your confidence with the rope
- Belaying methods
- Looking after yourself and others
- Planning a journey
- Weather knowledge and forecasting
- Route-finding and route-selection
We will be looking at building up your confidence on grade II and III scrambling terrain. Specifically looking at route finding, gear placement, and rope management. And how to keep each other safe. It may be a lot to take in on the course, and suggest 4 days. But if you are a fast learner, a 2 day course will be sufficient. Some of the infamous scrambles we may be attempting on the advanced scrambling course would be the infamous Idwal Staircase, Parsons Arete, or Pinnacle Ridge.
