Scrambling in Snowdonia
Crib Goch Ridge.
Mountain Scrambling is a hugely enjoyable activity. If you fancy a change from mountain walking and getting a bit more hands-on-rock it could be something for you! It's accessible to all levels of ambition, and suitable for anyone with a moderate level of fitness. You need to have a reasonable head for heights or to be prepared to work on developing one!. Scrambles are graded between 1 and 3 and we match route choice to your level of ability and aspirations.

If the dates below don't suit you, there are alternatives so give us a ring.

Classic Mountain Scrambling Weekend  (2 Days)
This weekend entails 2 full days with a full qualiified instructor taking in classic scrambles in Snowdonia and covering skills and techniques required to improve your scrambling. These courses are suitable for people with a good level of fitness and a reasonable head for heights.

To ensure that you get the highest level of care and instruction, this weekend is run on a ratio of 1:2.

Day 1 – We meet at 8:30am to discuss weather, possible venues and the routes you would like to do. We will base these decisions on your experience of scrambling and your aspirations. We then spend the day tackling the scramble(s) and learning new skills and rope techniques.

Day 2 – We usually aim to be more ambitious on day 2, making use of the skills and techniques we learnt the day before. We will tackle a more challenging scramble or more of the same if you so prefer.

Your instructor will provide all necessary safety equipment including harness, helmet and rope.  You will need to wear suitable clothing including a good pair of walking boots.  We will send you a kit list of all you will need.
