Lake District Scrambling Courses – Advanced
This is an exciting course for anyone keen to push their scrambling grade and for one of the best Alpine-style days out that the Lake District has to offer. The Lake District has some of the finest scrambling and mountaineering in Britain, for all levels of experience and ability. We will take you out into the challenging terrain of the Lake District’s tougher scrambles.
This is an introduction to higher grade scrambling routes, looking at techniques and rope-work skills for the safe ascent of Grade 2 and 3 scrambles.
Thrilling exposure and an alpine feel go hand in hand with Grade 3 scrambling. The classic route of Pinnacle Ridge would be one of the ports of call for technicality, challenge and exposure, as a perfect introduction to Grade 3 scrambling.
Safety equipment and scrambling equipment such as helmets, rope, slings, cams and nuts are provided by us.
