Is this the course for me?

You've done a fair bit of mountain walking and maybe a few easy scrambles.

What level of fitness do I need?

Fitness level 1: you exercise regularly through the week for short periods, and regularly do more eg a half day walk in the hills at the weekend.
Fitness level 2: you exercise regularly through the week – running, walking, cycling or playing sports. You can sustain a raised heart rate for a 45 minute run or a 2 hour bike ride. You can walk in the mountains or climb all day, but feel tired at the end.

What does the course cover?

This course gives you the opportunity to explore more challenging and exciting ways up mountains. If you're interested in learning some of the technical stuff, we can include that too.

What's the maximum ratio?
