Beginners scrambling course Lake District
Why should I do this course?
You love being out in the mountains hill walking and want to have a go at mountain scrambling knowing that you are in safe hands. Alternatively, you may already have done grade 1 scrambles like Striding Edge or Swirral Edge and want to try something harder with the safety of a rope. Scrambling is a hugely challenging, yet enjoyable activity and is accessible to all levels of ambition. Although not as serious as rock climbing, when you are scrambling you can find yourself in some very exhilarating situations.
What does this course cover?
Beginners guided scrambling is a two-day course spending time on classic summer scrambling routes at grades 1,2 and 3. 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.
We will guide you up the scrambles, often protected by a rope, teach you how to place your feet and which are the best handholds. You will get a really good idea about what level of scrambling you are happy with and might attempt on your own.
Who else will be on the course?
The course will be run on a maximum of 1 instructor to 4 client ratio.
