Hillwalker to Mountaineer Week
This is a week for hillwalkers to become mountaineers!
We’ll be hunting out rocky ridges, gullys and aretes, starting with grade one scrambles such as Y Griben and Crib Goch, progressing through the week to roped scrambles like Cneifion Arete and Parson’s Nose. Along the way you’ll learn how to move safely and efficiently through scrambling terrain, including using the rope to protect you and your partner on the trickier grades.
This really is a great way to progress your skills and discover some amazing parts of North Wales.

Scottish Winter Skills
Winter mountaineering is tough and requires a level of skills above that of a summer hillwalker.
On this course, based out of Aviemore in the Cairngorms, you will learn the skills to look after yourself in the winter mountain environment. This will include looking at the use of crampons and ice axes, navigating in zero visibility, avalanche awareness, emergency shelters and lots more!
This course is great fun, we love being out in the winter!
