Scrambling in North Wales

Take to the mountains with our experienced Mountain Leaders to learn the ins and outs of scrambling in North Wales. Throughout the day you will be learning about route selection, using guidebooks and navigation, as well as how to be safe out on the mountain and choosing the correct equipment.

Scrambling is great fun if you fancy a bit more of a challenge than your average walk. Getting to the top is always a brilliant feeling and the exposure you'll experience along the way will give the whole day a bit of an adrenaline kick. This course will give you all the basic knowledge and confidence you will need to carry on and explore the mountains in your own time. We also run guided scrambling trips in the Lake District.
