Ridge Scrambling

#Rock Climbing

Ridge scrambling is a really exciting and interesting way to ascend a mountain, with ridges like Curved Ridge, Aonach Eagach, Angels Ridge and the Liathach Pinnacles being some of the classic Scottish mountain ridges.

Moving safely on this terrain requires basic rock climbing and ropework skills.

Our Ridge Scrambling course spends the first day understanding guide books and maps, personal equipment and what specialist gear is required for scrambling before heading into the mountains and ascending a ridge. As you ascend you'll look at how to move safely on the rock, pitch short sections, building anchors and rope management.

On the second day we'll consolodate what we've already covered as we get more mileage climbing ridges, practice moving together, look at some simple problem solving and how to retreat from a ridge.

This course suits people who have summer hill walking experience and aspirations to climb ridges. Previous rock climbing experience is not essential, but beneficial if you have some. 

As with all our courses your guide will know the area well and will be able to use venues that suits you, in addition to being a qualified and experienced climber.

If you would prefer to be guided on a classic scramble, please have a look at our Guided Climbing Days.
