Most climbers attend one these courses after having an "epic". Far better is to know the skills before, or better still, know how to avoid minor problems becoming an epic. Climbing rescues can be technical affairs. We try to simplify as much as possible and provide you with a "toolbox" of skills that will enable you to cope with most situations, whether it be in single or multi pitch environment.
Our mountain navigation courses are based in Snowdonia and will teach you how to navigate efficiently to keep safe in the mountains. We run 2 mountain navigation courses in the mountains of Snowdonia:
Snowdonia is a mecca for mountain walking. It offers majestic rocky summits to gentler more rounded peaks to sedate and beautiful valley walks.
The highlands of Scotland offer a unique challenge to the mountain walker. Some of the most breathtaking and memorable days on the hill can be had in winter. Winter makes this amazing area change from being a challenge to a serious undertaking that needs special skills to have a safe and enjoyable day.
Snowdonia and North Wales has everything for the rock climber. Classic remote multi pitch mountain routes, roadside multi pitch crags, single and multi pitch sea cliffs (usually sunny) sport routes bouldering and easy single pitch crags to learn the ropes on. All of these are within a 45 minute drive.
Scrambling is the link between walking and climbing, it involves more use of the hands to get to the top of the mountain. Northern Snowdonia is one of the best places to scramble in the UK.
Gradient Adventure can provide a full guiding service to help you reach the summit whether summer or winter. We only use local and knowledgeable qualified mountain leaders and mountain instructors. We can cater for individuals and groups alike and have organised charity events for up to 150 people.
