Advanced Scrambling Course in the Lake District
On our advanced scrambling courses, the aim is likely to be twofold. We will aim to give you experience of moving on harder scrambling terrain, such as Grade 3 scrambles like Pinnacle Ridge. You will begin to appreciate the additional exposure on these routes and feel just how much more serious they are compared to Grade 1s. We will also be introducing you to some of the rope work used to safeguard scrambles, so that your level of knowledge increases too.
The picture shows a scrambler leading on Cam Crag Ridge. It is a brilliant route to do and we often use it on our courses. You can practise the rope skills associated with harder mountain scrambles and alpine mountaineering skills, such as moving together. That is the purpose of an advanced scrambling course. We will teach you a variety alpine mountaineering techniques which can be use to protect Grade 3 scrambles without slowing down your progress too much.
