Why should I do this rope work for scrambling course?

You have done some easier scrambling before and want to progress onto harder routes and learn how to protect yourself and others with a rope.

What does this course cover?

Rope work for scrambling is a two-day course spending time learning rope work skills on classic summer scrambling routes at grades 2, 3 and 4.

We will teach you how to use a rope to safely for yourself and someone else. This includes taking coils, choosing and using direct belays, indirect belaying and body belays, placing runners, moving together, abseiling and down climbing.
We also cover how to choose a route and interpret the guide book.

We hope to cover some classic mountain scrambles like Pinnacle Ridge, Cam Crag Ridge, Slab and Notch on Pillar, Harrison Stickle in Langdale, Easy Terrace and Giants Crawl on Dow.

What do I need to have done before?

You should be hill fit and happy to spend a day in the fells walking. Some experience of easy summer scrambling or indoor rock climbing is helpful but not essential.

Who else will be on the course?

The course will be run on a maximum 1 instructor to 4 client ratio.

Kit we provide.

We provide all technical kit for the activity.

What do I need to bring?

You will need a packed lunch, waterproofs, spare jumper, walking boots or similar and rucksack. If you have your own harness and helmet please bring these too.
