Learn new skills on our two scrambling tours in the Lake District
Mountain scrambling is an energetic blend of mountaineering and rock climbing, where the horizontal meets the vertical. You’ll bridge the gap between hiking and bouldering as you grip your hands on the rock and get stuck in.Guided scrambling in the Lake District is fantastic; thanks to this area’s incredible peaks and varied topography, there is never a dull moment. You’ll cover lots of ground throughout the day, clambering up rough steps and slabs to a sensational summit.
Introduction to Scrambling (grade 8 walking + grade 1 scrambling)
Operates on: 29 May 2021 for four nights
This introductory course is for trekkers who are looking to stray off-the-beaten-track and explore adventurous routes. It’s well-suited to those who have minimal to no scrambling experience and would be perfect for someone who enjoys hill walking. For this tour, you will also be expected to have a good level of fitness.
During your time in the Lake District, we will incorporate grade 1 scrambles, which have little to no hazards and offer easy route finding. There is a wide selection of tracks available to us, which will be chosen by qualified instructors based upon the weather conditions and the groups’ abilities and fitness levels.
You will need to have a head for heights, but will not be expected to use ropes, although some basic ropework skills might be taught.
Advanced Scrambling (grade 9 walking + grade 2 and 3 scrambling)
Operates on: 02 June 2021 for five nights
This advanced course is ultimately aimed at individuals who are wanting to progress onto more technically testing terrain. You will be a competent scrambler, looking to develop your ropework capabilities, increase in confidence and work towards scrambling independently.
Within this tour, there will also be additional exposure compared to Introduction to Scrambling and you will be getting to grips with increasingly challenging routes. Some parts will be long and tough, and a rope is likely to be utilised for safety and confidence.
Your four walking and scrambling days will involve more technical scrambles, typically grade 2 and grade 3:
Grade 2: These routes contain prolonged, demanding segments where a rope could be used for safety and confidence.
Grade 3: These routes should only be undertaken by experienced scramblers. It includes lengthy sections where escape is often difficult and a rope is recommended.
