Scrambling Courses 


Course duration : 1 Day

This course is ideal for the hill walker looking to venture onto steeper terrain where ropes are not required but a good range of techniques and judgments are.

During the course we will look at guide books, planning for the weather, scrambling technique and emergency procedures. Most of the day will be spent outdoors where we will tackle one of the classic scrambles in the Snowdonia range.

Alex - Scrambling Course  2017​​
"Heard about Matt through a friend and contacted him about wanting to climb Tryfan. Matt’s instruction was great and he made the day feel very relaxed, taking time to show me technique when it was needed. It was a great day and I am really happy I can now tick off Tryfan from my to do list."

Mair - Clasic Ridges Day. "Great day on Moel Siabod, weather was kinder than anticipated. A great route enabling walking and scrambling options, Matt knew when to extend the comfort zone!! We had a great laugh and while we were kept informed of route throughout was a pleasure to relax and focus on skills other than navigation for the day! Cheers Matt"
Sarah- Moel Siabod - 2016
"Thanks Matt for top day out in the mountains even if the weather didn’t play ball. The ridge pushed my nerves just enough and your patient, friendly approach was appreciated."
