Our introduction to scrambling course is for the competent hillwalker who would like to venture into more exhilarating terrain. We will provide you with the confidence and skills to undertake Grade I scrambles – ones that can typically be attempted without ropes or equipment.
On the Introduction to Scrambling Course, we will cover the following areas:
- Route-finding with map and compass
- Basic rope-work
- Efficient movement on steep, rocky slopes
- Looking after yourself and others
- Planning a journey
We will be mostly looking at building up your confidence on scrambling terrain, with easy route finding, and the occasional difficult steep steps. Most of these tend to be straight forward. Some of the infamous scrambles we may be attempting on the introduction to scrambling course would be Crib Goch, Tryfan, Bristly Ridge, Jack’s Rake, or Striding Edge.
