  • Have you tried some Grade 1 scrambles and want to push yourself a little further? Have you perhaps done some indoor or outdoor rock climbing and want to translate this into wider mountaineering skills? Are you ready to learn some mountaineering rope skills and techniques?

    If so, then perhaps a two-day course extending your scrambling skills on Grade 2 and Grade 3 scrambles is a good next step for you. Grade 2 and Grade 3 scrambles are still technically straightforward as far as climbing movement is concerned, but the situations are more serious (which also means dramatic and photogenic!). Ropes and rock climbing equipment are the norm on these routes.

    Maybe we will find ourselves on routes on Glyder Fach's main cliff, such as the Dolmen Ridge. Or perhaps on Snowdonia's little gem, the Cneifion Arete. Wherever we go, you will find yourself in superb locations, with more lengthy sections of tricky scrambling, and learning the rope skills to safeguard yourself and a partner over this kind of terrain.

    The cots of £180.00 is for instruction, guiding and use of equipment only. However, if you wish, accommodation can be included for an additional cost of £50.00 or the weekend can be made all inclusive of two nights accommodation, two cooked breakfasts and packed lunches, and one evening dinner. The total price, including food and accommodation (as described), guiding and instruction, and use of equipment, is £270.

    The hostel we will be staying in is a Five Star hostel, with the best beds that I think I have ever slept in! Bedding and towels are included.

    The whole plan for the weekend is:

    Friday

    Check in to hostel for 2 nights (included in accommodation price). The rooms are mixed gender rooms but each bunk is built into the wall with its own privacy curtain.

    Saturday

    Breakfast - cooked or continental (included in full price)

    Collect packed lunch (included in full price)

    Day 1 - Introduction to scrambling equipment and first day's scramble (a classic Grade 2 or 3 route). A helmet, harness and all technical equipment and ropes are included in the price.

    Dinner - gastro-pub meal (included in full price - but drinks not included)

    Sunday

    Breakfast - cooked or continental (included in full price)

    Collect packed lunch (included in full price)

    Day 2 - Second day's scramble (a classic Grade 2 or 3 route).


    Travel to North Wales is not included. For those who wish to arrange a car-share, we can facilitate this on this Meet-Up page. For those who prefer to travel by train, the nearest station is Llandudno Junction (approx 20 minutes away).

    You will need to provide suitable mountain clothing, especially waterproof jacket and trousers (we can provide a full kit list); walking boots; and a rucksack. We will provide all technical equipment.

    You need to be fit enough to walk for 6+ hours over variable terrain, including ascending probably[masked] metres.
