Scrambling courses for beginners and intermediate mountaineers
- 125 British pounds£125
- North Wales
During the day your instructor will lead you on a classic scramble in North Wales with the opportunity to learn skills while enjoying a days climbing on some of the most breathtaking scenery in the British Isles. Scrambling is linked closely with mountaineering and requires participants to hike and scramble up sometimes technical ground without using the amount of gear used with traditional climbing. By moving light we can cover more ground but still enjoy an element of climbing by using a shorter rope and some climbing aids. Scrambling is the best way to cover lots of ground and usually requires participant to get higher up into the mountains which are also where the best views are. You may have heard of classic scrambles such as North ridge of Tryfan or Crib Goch on Snowdon. These are grade 1 scrambles and don't require a rope however with the company of a guide you can explore new areas. During the start of the day we will talk about expectations and outcomes but no matter what your current level is you can be sure to have improved your climbing performance and learn some new skills to put into practice during personal days out. You don't need any previous experience to join. The day has been designed for beginners to take first steps onto serious climbing terrain while enjoying the safety of the instructors guidance. All of the technical kit is provided excluding your climbing boots. For help with kit please email me and we can discuss options. Once booked a full kit list will be provided. This includes what you will need to be comfortable outdoors for the day planned. We generally meet in Capel Curig in North Wales but will confirm the location nearer the time. For help with accommodation there are lots of options including B&B and campsites. For travel it is best if you have your own vehicle however if using public transport we may be able to organise something more bespoke. Please get in touch regarding your travel plans and we can be flexible to suit your needs. This course is inclusive to all and therefore we will do our upmost to account for all fitness and physical abilities. If you would like to discuss anything we recommend getting in touch prior to the start date.
