Introduction to Scrambling
We will spend some time planning how to get to and go up and down steeper routes. We will help you develop the all important judgement required to assess safe and secure holds and there'll be lots of practical coaching on how to utilise these holds and move competently and confidently on grade one scrambles. You can expect full mountain days reaching the summits if the weather allows.
At Leading Edge, our personable and individualised instruction and coaching will allow you to access heights that you previously thought unattainable. This is an excellent start to get to grips with some of the more technical and challenging routes up the British mountains, who knows where it might lead you.
