How do I book? Visit the booking page to find out how to book this course.

Do I need a head for heights? Some previous experience of mountain walking should stand you on good steed for this course. We build up the scrambling gradually so you can get used to the height and exposure.

What's included in the cost? The course fee includes the instruction you receive only. It does not include accommodation, food or transport costs.

What equipment do I need? You will need to wear suitable mountain walking clothing and walking boots. You will also need a rucksack to carry spare clothes, waterproofs, food and drink. I will email you a full kit list when you book on the course.

What happens if the weather is bad? If the weather is bad we go out any way - that's the nature of mountaineering in this country! Ifs its not safe to go on tops there are plenty of low level scrambles to do.

Where do we meet? I normally meet at 9.15 at Pete's Eats in Llanberis. We'll have a quick chat about the course then head out to a local crag to do some rock climbing. We normally finish between 4.30 and 5pm
