Your host will meet you at the bunkhouse where you’ll meet the rest of the group, and settle down for the night. Dinner on the first night is not included as people tend to arrive at different times, but there are pubs nearby and some self-catering facilities on site.
Breakfast will be served at the bunkhouse’s on-site rustic cafe. A highly-experienced psychological performance coach will join you to deliver a talk to introduce the cognitive behavioural techniques, mindfulness skills, and relaxation methods that will help you develop mental strength as a hillwalker and explorer. You’ll then walk to a nearby location for some roped climbing, sprints, and hill reps to simulate different challenging situations that each require different facets of mental strength. You’ll head to a nearby cafe for a spot of lunch, before jumping into a minibus and venturing out for a full afternoon of scrambling to test what you’ve learned in a real environment. A hearty dinner will be served when you return - back at the bunkhouse cafe.
On Sunday morning, after breakfast, you’ll head out for a full day of scrambling up one of the areas fantastic routes. This could be a guided traverse of the classic Crib Goch or the North Ridge of Tryfan North Ridge, depending on weather and group confidence levels. You’ll return to the bunkhouse for 4pm at the latest, to allow you to travel home before the weekend is over.
You’ll be working up a sweat. Bring along a touch of enthusiasm and a little determination
