Highlights

Mega-Mountains: Parent and child scrambling day: For the more adventurous, take on harder scrambles in the mountains - not quite climbing, but certainly not walking, we'll travel through the mountains via scrambling routes appropriate to the day and your ability.
We suggest this is suitable for ages 11+.

Also see our Mini-Mountains and Mighty-Mountains options.

Itinerary

Dependent on where we go, after a 15-25 walk up a valley, we'll begin by getting harnesses and helmets on, and a practice of what we'll do on some easy ground before heading onto our challenge. The day will be tailored around you, so whatever level you want, we can challenge you. The routes will allow us to travel into the mountains, and before you know it, you'll be looking down at the valley wondering how you got up there and what happened to all that time.
Scrambling has three grades: Grade 1: Think walking on steep rocks when you need your hands. You'll wear a helmet and harness plus a rope on certain sections. Grade 2: You'll need you hands pretty much all the time, and we'll be roped up for most of the scramble. Grade 3: As with grade 2, but you'll be on a rope the whole time. These routes include short sections of rock climbing.
If the location is not ideal, please contact us for a bespoke day.
