Overview

For anybody who enjoys moving through the hills and mountains, scrambling opens up a whole new world of challenges and excitement. We’ll teach you how to move over steep ground safely and reach places that require a little more judgement but yield even bigger rewards. Our highly qualified instructors will cover how to identify and choose scrambling routes wisely, movement skills and techniques that will allow you to access steeper terrain confidently and competently, and navigational tips and tricks while out on route.

The majority of your learning will take place out on some of Snowdonia’s most classic and exciting scrambles and rocky ridges, meaning you’ll constantly be honing and refining your developing skills. At the end of the five days, you’ll have the confidence to explore some classic mountain routes.
