Rock scrambling in SnowdoniaRock scrambling in Snowdonia. Katie and Bill spent the weekend rock scrambling on ground up to grade 3. Learning rope techniques in order to cope with this type of ground safely. We started on grade 1 with short roping techniques and migrated into grade 2. This is when the rope started to get used. Using a short pitching technique, we kept things moving fast. Finally, we ended up on grade 3 ground where full pitching was being employed. The next day we went on to the North Ridge of Tryfan scrambling up to grade 2 using techniques learned on day one. A great few days rock scrambling in the Ogwen Valley in Snowdonia.
