On Crib y Ddysgl with Crib Goch and Moel Siabod in the background

Who is ‘Introduction to Scrambling’ for?


This course is for people who are looking to venture on to the classic ridge scrambles of Britain’s mountains. If you want to find out what the north ridge of Tryfan or Crib Goch are like then this course is a great intro to learning the skills to head onto these routes yourself.


This course is best run over 1 or 2 days.

Mountain Weather

Other Questions


What if the weather is bad?

The weather has to be pretty bad to stop a scrambling course from running, however if high winds are forecast we have a great selection of low level venues to keep you busy.
