If you’re new to scrambling or even been doing it a while, I would always recommend you
scramble up instead of down. Since scrambling is the next level before climbing, a scramble
routes would naturally follows the way someone would climb up.

This means that you will be closer to the terrain, as the higher ground is in front of you,
therefore it’s easier to use your hands and find a safe route up. You can scramble down, but
I would say it’s more challenging and requires careful foot placement.

Price: £60 per person – peak district (1 Day)
£140 per person Snowdonia (2 days)
Group booking please enquire.
Location: Peak district or Snowdonia
Time Duration: Start time 9:00am. Approx finish 4pm
Ratio: 1:6
Difficulty rating [3]

Location: This course has two locations, Peak district or Snowdonia. This would depend on
your skill level and what you’re wanting from the course.
 Peak district is ideal to stay low level and focus more on looking at the technical
aspect of scrambling. A course based in the peak district is usually one day.
 Snowdonia is more of a journey into the mountains to complete a scramble to gain
100metres etc. These scrambles are longer and over the course of the day. A
course in Snowdonia is usually two days.
