Scrambling


Often difficult to define, scrambling involves using your hands-not just your feet-to get up a hill or mountain. So what appears to be a scramble to one person may be another’s idea of a frightening climb. To many, scrambling lies somewhere in between walking and rock-climbing, with no need for lots of technical equipment or expertise.

That said, the exposure of un-roped scrambles can be dramatic, and so care must be taken to ensure safety.
