Snowdonia undoubtedly has some of the finest scrambling in the uk and is very accessible from the road making it the perfect venue to head to if you are looking to discover the mountains away from the paths and crowds. It has everything to offer from classic mountain walks to extreme rock climbing and scrambling fits into that middle ground where we can move through the mountains seeking out the more rocky and adventurous routes without ever feeling too intimidated. This course focuses on the grade two and grade three scrambles where the use of a rope and climbing equipment would be appropriate to safeguard us.
IS IT FOR ME?
