More Info

Scrambling is a healthy combination of hiking and rock climbing – it is “scrambling” up and over rocks and rough with the use of your hands. Ropes are not used to assist in scrambling beyond basic safety and precaution. It includes alpine scrambling, which is scrambling in high mountains. It may behoove participants to use a helmet and other safety equipment for sustained and high-risk objectives.


Scrambling can take place wherever there is substantial outcropping, mountain terrain, or challenging elevated ascents. Some scrambling programs can take a week or more to complete, while others can be completed over the course of a comfortable afternoon. While a general fitness is an asset for most scrambling adventures, it is open to anyone with a passion for the outdoors. Potential scramblers should be prepared and equipped to handle the particular obstacles of their specific objective.

Our mission was to hike up Ben Nevis but not along the main footpath. We hoped for something a bit
more challenging. ..and we got it. Uncertain of what we’d be facing, Scott expertly assessed our ability during the first part of the hike and enthusiastically confirmed that we could handle the trip up the back. Knowledgeable about about the area, geology and flora, Scott was an excellent guide and fun to spend the day with. He offered us tips for managing the terrain and kept the pace that would give us the adventure we were looking for. We came away feeling that the investment in a guide was well worth it. We would not have tackled that route without his guidance. Recommended without reservation! Thanks Scott
Amazing day climbing Crib Goch with Rusty our guide. Full of knowledge and very experienced. Highly recommended
What a top day on The North Ridge of Tryfan. Could not have done it without fabulous guiding from Richard
(Rusty) Bale. Highly recommend this scrambling day.
An excellent day. Well planned, great guidance and tuition for my two children and very patient with them giving good
advice and encouragement to get them to the top. Thoroughly recommend Richard and his team.
Rusty certainly knows his stuff.
I made a booking request for a one-on-one guided trip less than a week before the date and was lucky
enough to get a guide (Phil) without problem, who did a splendid job and made this a very enjoyable, instructive and safe first scramble for me. Communication was great before the event, too. I‘d recommend this company without hesitation and hope to hike with them again in the future.
Ken was a wonderful guide! He was thorough in assessing our experience and picked the right hike for us.
He was full of knowledge and easy to talk to as well. We’d definitely recommend him and hope to hike with him again ourselves.
Top Day very knowledgeable guide, will be using again
On short notice, while traveling through Scotland, we booked a Private Guide to Ben Nevis through Explore-Share.com.   We much enjoyed
the climb to the summit with our Guide Stuart Mapp; Stuart was the consummate professional and his concern for both our safety and this experience cannot be understated.  His direct knowledge of Ben Nevis’s Route, History, Flora and Stories made this trip the highlight of our 17 days in Scotland and Ireland for us.  Our success to the summit, and back down, was directly supported by Stuart and made it very much more enjoyable .  Thank you again!
What an amazing day very knowledgeable instructor can’t wait to do more Highly recommend
Euan was great and I would recommend him to others.
I had an amazing day scrambling up North Ridge of Tryfan then Bristly Ridge walking to the Glyders and back
Y Gribin. I was pushed me out of my comfort zone and I am really glad for it! The place is incredible! I can honestly say that was one of my best days of my life! Thank you! 🙂
