Our 'further' scrambling course looks developing your previous scrambling skills and knowledge to let you progress onto more exciting and committing terrain. We recap core areas such as planning, movement skills, footwork, route reading from the guide and en route. We also look at basic rope work to be able to look after us as a leader and to protect a second on grade 2-3 terrain.
Learn core skills to keep you and your partner safe on scrambling terrain
Coaching with movement to become more confident on scrambling terrain
Route finding skills, through use of the guidebook and while on route
Techniques on how to safe guard each other with the use of the rope
How & when to construct belays, showing pros and cons of different methods
Due to the variety of weather conditions encountered in Scotland this course is run with a conditions based approach, meaning that your instructor/guide will use the best of conditions to maximise safety, your learning and overall experience throughout your course. Below is a sample itinerary.
Day 1 Venue TBC
We will cover kit carried, route finding, decision making on the route.
We will also spend some time on rope work, belays how to set them up and organise them.
Day 2 Venue TBC
On day two we will put into action what we have learned from day one on another scramble with the use of a rope to safeguard each other in different types of terrain and how to abseil should we need to.

We understand that getting a quality nights sleep and being able to dry your equipment can make all the difference to the comfort and enjoyment of your trip. So we have used some of the local B&B's due to the fact they provide what we need well. The rooms are priced on a sharing basis, but we can also arrange private rooms and/or different accommodation if you wish.
