Are you ready for some of the best hands-on scrambling in the UK?

Luckily, here in Eryri (Snowdonia) we have some of the most exciting and rewarding scrambles right on our doorstep! This may prove to be one of the most memorable weekends you can do in the UK mountains, over rocky, rough and truly unique terrain.

With so many amazing mountains in Eryri, we’re spoilt for choice when it comes to scrambling - we’ve got everything from cool gullies to incredible airy ridges. You’ll be tested and treated, on this classic weekend. Whilst this is an introduction to scrambling course, a good level of mountain walking fitness will certainly help you get the most from this weekend.

Over the course of the weekend our instructors will work with and support you to become self sufficient scramblers by the end of day 2. They’ll share as much knowledge as they can on the following topics:

  • guidebooks and route selection
  • route finding
  • movement on steep ground
  • interpreting mountain weather
  • emergency procedures
  • kit and equipment

Route choice

To give you the best possible experience and ensure you learn as much as possible from the weekend, we can’t make any promises on which specific scrambles we will complete - this will be dependent on the weather on the day, previous experience of the group and a number of other factors.

The decisions will always be made with safety and your enjoyment at the forefront and discussed with you in the evening or morning brief.

The cost of the weekend includes 3 nights self-catering hostel-style accommodation in the heart of Snowdonia, at one of our very favourite adventure bases - Lon Dryll Outdoors.
