Minimum Requirements

You will need to have completed some Grade II scrambles. Also, basic map-reading skills would be useful, but not essential. A reasonable degree of fitness is expected, but rest assured this is a course in scrambling, not fell-running!


Each day of our scrambler to climber course we would introduce the topic of weather, and ability, and how this would affect venue selection.


Day 1

We will briefly the use of a map and compass, and what sometimes can be complicated, route finding.  We will be scrambling up grade III terrain, introducing gear placement, belaying and building anchors, and looking at rope management.


Day 2

We will be using the skills learnt on day one, and do lots more scrambling over grade III terrain or climbing on easy graded climbs.  Looking at efficient movement, rope management, and route finding.  And of course, do some abseiling.
