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 safety 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 guidebook.
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.
Who else will be on the course?
The course will be run on a maximum of 1 instructor to 4 client ratio.
