We will meet over a coffee in the morning at 0900 and run through scrambling equipment and how to use it safely. We go over the fundamentals of scrambling knots as well as the essential techniques for effective belaying and scrambling. After that, we put all of this knowledge into practice by honing our scrambling technique.

Day one may include leading or 'shadow' leading depending on confidence and ability. There's no pressure.
