This is a two day course aimed at people who wish to get out into more challenging terrain in the mountains. In addition to looking at planning and journeying skills we will also cover route choice and basic rope work (no harnesses). A big emphasis will be on personal movement and much time will be spent on coaching and improving movement through steeper terrain and helping you develop confidence both in ascent and descent.
The plan would be for a skills day on the Saturday, going over all the techniques required to stay safe in rocky terrain. On day two we would hope to undertake a grade 1 scramble on one of the bigger Cairngorm mountains putting into practice all the skills.
For this course you need to be a regular mountain walker but do not need any prior scrambling or climbing experience. You should be comfortable undertaking a full day out on the higher mountains of U.K. and be able to walk off paths across mixed terrain.
