Mountaineering Skills Workshops

The focus of the mountaineering skills workshops is to develop competency in individuals, empowering them to venture into the mountains without the support of a guide. We offer a range of courses to suit all abilities, be that a complete novice or somebody working towards becoming a group leader.

Although we love a day out in the hills and the pleasure of reaching the summits, the focus here is instead on skills acquisition. To this end we will often spend the day at low level. Depending on what we’re trying to achieve, this might mean that we stay in the car park and if the weather is particularly bad we may even spend the day indoors. If this isn’t want you had in mind then our guided tours of the Snowdonia mountains might be more suitable.
