We will cover how to effectively plan a day in the mountains, guide book interpretation and applying this to the route. The kit we carry and why, route finding en route, decision making on the route about where to go and how to use the rope, inc transitions between rope off, moving together and pitching the crux section on the scramble.
On day two we will put into action what we have learned from day one on another scramble with the use of a rope to safeguard each other in different types of terrain and how to abseil should we need to.
