What is Scrambleing


Scrambleing is the activity of moving over rocky terrain in the mountains. Between hill walking and rock climbing, you have Scrambling. Easy grade 1 scrambles don't normally require a rope, whereas Grade 1+, grade 2, and grade 3 scrambles are harder and require the use of rock climbing equipment to safeguard. 

What to Expect


A challenging Exciting mountain Journey, fully guided by a mountaineering instructor, and a great intro to the world of mountain scrambles. When the going gets tough, you'll be belayed (kept safe) using the rope.
