Introduction

You may be a summer hillwalker. You may wish to walk to other more complex places. And as a result, may need to learn new skills. Such as walking over steep ground safely using a rope. Once the weekend is over, you will have gained experience in climbing some of Snowdonia’s classic rocky ridges.

Who is this course for?

This course is for hill walkers that wish to learn new skills by navigating the exposed rocky ridges of Snowdonia safely. For successful completion of this course, it is necessary to have a good level of mountain fitness. And also some experience in steep summer hillwalking.

What will I be doing as part of this course?

We will equip participants with some basic technical information for safe execution of the activity. However, we don’t want this to detract from the fun and excitement of scrambling.

Some of the topics we will develop include:

  • Clothing and equipment
  • Basic scrambling techniques
  • Movement Skills
  • Assessing risk and route choice
  • Hazard management
  • Assisting and safeguarding other party members
  • Simple ropework for scrambles
  • Guidebooks and grading systems

Depending on the weather, we may need to adapt the weekend, as required.
