Advanced Scrambling

It's not walking, but it isn't climbing, its the grey space in between.

Real mountain exposure

A guided day aimed at experienced summer hill walkers and Grade 1 scramblers who wish to develop their skills and confidence on more challenging Grade 2+ terrain. You’ll be guided roped up on classic scrambling routes in areas that hillwalkers can only look at. Get a true feeling of what it is to be a mountaineer, with exposure and stunning backdrops shared by few as opposed to the many.

Content of the day includes:

  • Planning your mountain day
  • Route finding and assessing risk
  • Movement over the terrain
  • Guidebooks, maps and the grading system
  • Choice of equipment, including ropes
  • How to build a belay and climbing protection
  • Navigating in the mountains
  • Emergency procedures

Previous experience

Summer hill walking experience, scrambling at grade 1 and a head for heights is essential. A reasonable level of fitness will ensure you get the most out of your days, as these are long mountain days in rugged rocky terrain.
