Open to everyone



  • Enjoy the stunning scenery of Snowdonia National Park.
  • Learn how to scramble and make various ascents.
  • Extend your trip and spend as much time as you like exploring the pristine park.


Situated in the northwest of Wales, Snowdonia National Park is home to some world-class scrambling!

Boasting great gullies and soaring ridge lines, there are a lifetime of classic scrambles just waiting to be done!

And we will waste no time in getting out on the rocks. We will meet at about 9 am at our pre-determined meeting point and head right out into the park.

There are a lot of different types of scrambling available to us, ranging from easier ones that require no rope to substantially more difficult ones that will require equipment.

Depending on your technical abilities as well as what you would like to do, we can tailor the perfect itinerary for you.

Among the top scrambling spots available to us will be the classic Snowdon Horseshoe, which is appropriate for all scramblers.

Then there is the Bochlwyd Horseshoe, which is yet another classic route that takes us to the top of Tryfan.

For more advanced scramblers, the Llech Ddu Spur is always a good challenge that yields simple excellent views at the end.

So what are you waiting for? Book now for this amazing 1+ day scrambling experience in stunning Snowdonia National Park!

If you like the look of this trip then I think you will also enjoy my classic multi-pitch climbs, also in Snowdonia National Park!

About the guide

My Name is James Monypenny. I have been a passionate rock climber for 15 years, and I have been working as a professional, qualified Rock Climbing and Mountaineering Instructor and Mountain Leader for 12 years.

I have climbed new routes on unclimbed peaks all over the world, in exciting places such as Patagonia, Peru, Kyrgyzstan, China, Bolivia, Pakistan, India, Tajikistan and Nepal, but the cliffs and mountains of Snowdonia, in Wales, remain the most special to me, as I am lucky enough to call them home.

I guide multi-pitch classic Snowdonia climbs, classic roped scrambles, introduction to sea cliff climbing, and other great courses and tours for beginners and experienced climbers.

I look forward to giving you an amazing rock climbing experience in Wales!

James was great as a guide. Despite the varying weather, he was able to find good locations for climbing, and tailored to our skill levels. We had great climbs in Snowdon, Anglesey.

This was our first outdoor climbing experience and we loved it. We can highly recommend James who planned a full day of climbing around our wishes. Thank you James for this unforgettable day.

I had an amazing 2 days spent with James climbing. I was new to climbing and have now fallen in love with the sport thanks to James’ incredible teaching and adventures. James spent time getting to know me which allowed him to cater the course to what I wanted to achieve. The days flew by way too quickly as I was having too much fun. I will definitely be booking in some dates soon for some more adventuring and climbing. Thank you James :-) and I will definitely be recommending you to everyone I know.
