SCRAMBLING & ALPINE PREPARATION
Scrambling on the Isle of Skye
Scrambling up and down rocky terrain is great fun; it combines the journey element of walking with the challenge of climbing and learning ropework. Gaining mileage and experience in the UK in areas such as North Wales, the Lake District and Scotland will be excellent preparation toward achieving Alpine goals.
WEST HIGHLAND ALPINE INTRO WEEKEND
You will learn to tie in and manage your rope in “Alpine style” for safe but expedient use whilst covering hundreds of metres of scrambling. We will give a template then give plenty of opportunity for you to put into practice the methods and systems required to make big mountain scrambles achievable in a safe way.
Importantly, when thinking of Alpine travel, time will be spent ascending (obviously) AND descending technical scrambling terrain, to improve this crucial aspect of Alpine mountaineering.
