This weekend serves as an introduction to the vast array of skills and techniques needed in technical mountaineering terrain. We’ll show how the rope can be used in different ways to keep things safe and efficient and focus on the fundamentals of good decision making. You can expect to spend the first day refreshing and developing ropework skills, with the following day spent putting them into practice on an appropriate scramble for the team.

What to Expect

Both days of this course will be spent ‘on the hill’ where we will travel some of the iconic scrambles of northern Snowdonia. You will be well looked after by our experienced and qualified Instructors who will pass on just the right amount of information to help you learn new skills and reach new places. We’ll tailor the course to best suit your needs, whether that’s more instruction or just getting out there for more experience under our guidance.

Experience Required

To join this course we ask that you’ve either attended one of our Snowdonia Classic Guided Scrambles courses, have experience of rock climbing at Difficult or above, or have similar experience. This is to ensure everyone has a solid skillset and understanding of ropework upon which to build.  

How Should I Prepare?

You need to be either a climber wanting to learn how to operate on scrambling terrain or a hillwalker who wants to experience scrambling terrain.
