Our advanced scrambling course looks at the fundamental skills needed to look after yourself and your partner on typical grade 3 terrain. We will look at rope work techniques inc, stance management, transitions between moving together or pitching and how we recognise when to do so. All the while keeping these areas slick while maintaining flow in our movement, and our rope work.
