Intro to Scrambling

mountain - Up to 4 people

Description

For hillwalkers looking to progress their skills and venture into more exciting terrain and incorporate narrow ridges, airy buttresses and steep ascents into their mountain day.

This course will venture into graded scrambling terrain. We will cover aspects such as planning, guidebook interpretation and route finding. A rope isn't usually required on grade 1 and 2 terrain but we will teach you other methods of safeguarding yourself and others. Emergency ropework can be covered. 

Complete a classic scramble in the Lakes with an experienced instructor and take away the skills and knowledge to plan your own adventures.
