    Would you like to experience the fun of scrambling for the first time? Then I invite you to join me on a 2-day scrambling introductory course in Snowdonia, North Wales. I will give you the skills you need to tackle scrambles on your own.

    If you are already a hillwalker looking to add some excitment to your hikes, then scrambling is perfect for you. Snowdonia is UK’s scrambling and climbing mecca. We have so many fantastic scrambles to choose from here!

    The course I propose will include choosing a route, personal movement skills and route finding. Also, we will go over what equipment you will need and how to use a rope.

    We will spend the 2 days on Grade 1 scrambles, and possibly Grade 2. We may follow some of Snowdonia’s classic scrambles, like Crib Goch, Cneifion Arete or Bristly Ridge. I assure you will add a good challenge and excitment to your next trip to the hills!

    By the end of this scrambling course day, you will have increased your skills and be ready to take on more adventurous routes! Please note I take a maximum of 6 people on this scrambling course, to make sure everyone enjoys it in a safe way.

    About the Guide


    I hold a Mountaineering Instructor Certificate (MIC). I am fully qualified to guide and instruct all aspects of mountaineering and climbing in the UK throughout the year. Also, I am a full member of the Mountain Training Association (MTA) and the Association of Mountaineering Instructors (AMI).

    I love climbing and this passion has taken me all over the world, even to the summit of Mount Everest. I have also climbed in the Andes, as well as in the Alps, Norway and Canada. I reached the summit of Mount Everest on May 2001, as a member of the RAF Mountain Rescue Service Everest North Ridge expedition.

    I first started mountaineering in Scotland with the RAF Mountain Rescue Service, over 20 years ago. Since then, I haven't stopped climbing and exploring new mountains in the UK and abroad. I have been a RAF Mountain Rescue Team Leader and also the Chief Instructor for 5 years. I have also climbed all the Munros, the Scottish peaks above 3000 feet.

    I love climbing around North Wales and the rest of the UK. We have so many amazing climbing and scrambling spots to discover in this area! I enjoy taking my clients there for rock climbing, scrambling and mountain skills courses or for a guided day out.

    We can set up a program according to your level and wishes. Contact me and we can start planning your next mountain adventure right away!
