Scrambling

Scrambling fills the grey area between walking and climbing. It is effectively clambering over rocks and steep ground using your hands and sometimes ropes.
We offer 3 different courses:

Guided

1 day course. Take the worry out of route finding and safety. We will guide you on whatever level you feel comfortable and for as long you wish.
