SCRAMBLING

Scrambling is a fantastic activity offering a great sense of freedom and adventure. It's a superb way to discover more challenging mountainous terrain than hill walking but without the multipitch rock climbing. Scrambling takes in exhilarating terrain and the level of exposure and difficulty can vary.  

If you are a keen hill walker looking to take in more challenging terrain, or a climber who wants to discover big mountain link ups, or simply fancy the look of scrambling, then why not book a course with one of our experience and qualified Instructors for a safe, exciting and adventurous day out in some fantastic mountainous terrain.
