Introduction to Scrambling

Do you want more of a challenge on your days in the mountains? Crib Goch & Tryfan are iconic and famous mountains that require scrambling to get to the top. I can tailor a course to develop your skills so that you can tackle these grade 1 scrambles. Crib Goch, Bristly Ridge, North ridge of Tryfan, Crib Lem spur on Carnedd Dafydd and many more lesser known quality scrambles. This can be a guided experience or an instructional course where you will learn the skills to get on grade 1 scrambles for yourself.

Roped Scrambling - Grade 3

The next step. If you are a keen grade 1 scrambler it can be hard to know what to do when you want to get on something a bit trickier. Will it require a rope? I can guide you on grade 2 and 3 scrambles and give you the confidence to enjoy these exposed ventures in the mountains of Snowdonia. There are many brilliant routes on the east face of Tryfan, Clogwyn y Person arete on Crib y Ddysgl, Cneifion Arete on Glyder Fawr are just a few of the classics available to explore. I can also provide days of instruction so you can develop your scrambling skills to become independent.

Scrambling Guidebook for North Wales

My friend Garry Smith has put many hours in to getting his book North Wales scrambles published, the photos are great and the descriptions aren't bad either! If you are going to buy a guidebook I would strongly recommend this one.
