This 1 day course is designed to give you some of the ropework skills and confidence to take on grade 2 or 3 scrambles. With one of our Mountaineering Instructors, you will be taught how to find information on a route; how and when to deploy the rope and protection; Anchor selection and emergency procedures should you ever need to retreat or call for help. We will provide all the equipment and guidance to give you the skills and knowledge to get you on your way to independence.
You don’t need to have used a rope but proven experience on graded (grade 1 or 2) scrambles is essential to ensure you get the most out of this advanced scrambling course. To ensure maximum learning, this course is run on a 1:2 ratio.
All our courses are delivered in the mountains of Snowdonia by highly experienced and qualified Mountaineering and Climbing Instructors (MCI).
Depending on the weather, we will spend both days exploring classic scrambles on Snowdon, Y Glyderau or Tryfan’s east face. A typical course will include instruction in:
Belaying and safeguarding your partner,
