Have you got previous hill walking experience? Do you wish to extend your scrambling knowledge and try more adventurous mountain routes? If you are interested in learning how to move over steep ground safely, perhaps using a rope, then we have the course for you.
For those who have a head for heights and a sense of adventure we can offer a wide range of scrambling courses. In the Lake District we are lucky enough to have over 50 different scrambles on our doorstep. We can tailor a course to suit you.
Introduction to Scrambling
We’ll introduce you to some of the easier scrambles or guide you along the longer, more challenging routes in the central fells. Scrambles range from easy but spectacular rocky walking to harder, steeper movement over rock that requires some climbing and occasionally the security of a rope. It gives an amazing day out, but requires judgment and skill, both of which we will help you develop. There are also many adventures to be had within the amazing ghylls that cut through the hills.
Looking at taking a more adventurous route on the mountain? This course aims to increase your skills and provider you with the knowledge to enable you to tackle those routes.
The course will cover all aspects of scrambling, both roped and unroped and movement over graded scrambles. Will look at scrambling techniques on rock and mixed ground, use of safety systems, route choice and route finding. Our instructors are highly skilled and experts in providing safe, enjoyable days in the mountain.
We have been doing a few days of family rock-climbing with Dan every year, starting as complete outdoor novices and moving on to increasingly difficult and varied routes over the past five years. Dan manages to combine infinite patience, encouragement, and a great sense of humour with knowing exactly how much and how far to challenge us, so that each time we progress in ways we could never have imagined! Being able to overcome fears of exposure, managing multi-pitch severe (or harder) routes AND being able to enjoy ourselves at the same time is all thanks to Dan's experience as an instructor and his excellent people skills. We have recommended Dan and Real Adventure highly to all our friends and anyone who is looking for brilliant fun, challenge, and adventure!
