The Advanced Scrambling course is targeted at confident individuals who feel comfortable on Grade 1 scrambling ground, and wish to advance onto more  complex terrain, and onto Grade 2 and 3 scrambles.  Grade 2 and 3 scrambles will negotiate steep and complex terrain and will require the use of ropes and climbing equipment.

All Summit Mountain Skills advanced scrambling courses are based in Snowdonia and Scotland. A detailed equipment list will be sent out upon booking. We are able to provide helmets and harnesses, should they be required.


For experienced scramblers looking to take on more challenging terrain and develop the skills for continual improvement.

About Summit Mountain Skills

To learn about Summit Mountain Skills, you have to understand that my love for the outdoors started when I was just 7 years old. My father and I walked the Pennine way together and I instantly became hooked.

Over 40 years, my adventures have taken me all over the world with climbing and mountaineering trips across the UK, the Alps and the beautiful Himalayas.

I am a fully qualified Mountaineering Instructor. Such qualifications allow me to work all year, both in the summer (where I work in North Wales and the Peak District) and the winter (where I move to Scotland due to the scenic views). I take pride in transferring the skills I have developed over the years to other individuals, and watching their confidence and skills grow.

My work consists of introductory mountaineering courses right through to training and assessing Mountain Leaders; I also take pride in leading overseas trips. In addition to providing instruction at Glenmore Lodge – Scotland’s National Outdoor Centre – I have delivered Winter Safety lectures for the BMC and worked for Jagged Globe on rock and scrambling courses across the UK. I am also a course director for Mountain Training Wales, leading qualification courses for the organisation in the summer and winter.
