Summer Scrambling/Rock Climbing

Make the step from walking routes to more technical and steeper ground.

scrambling great gully buttressScrambling is really good fun and takes you off the normal walking paths. It is essentially very easy rock climbing where you require hands and feet to make upward progress. At its easiest entry level no ropes or technical equipment are required. At a more advanced level the use of  rope techniques will be required.

Classic routes such as The Zig-Zags or Curved Ridge in Glencoe or Ledge Route and Tower Ridge on Ben Nevis are all very popular.

You can be guided or learn to lead the way and use technical equipment yourself.
