Scrambling days and courses in Snowdonia

What's the difference between walking & scrambling and scrambling & rock climbing? It's a question I get asked all the time. OK, here goes. If you have to take your hands out of your pockets on a walk and scrabble up bits of rock you're scrambling. The difficulty of this scrambling and how much of it there is determines whether it comes within the scrambling grading system or climbing grading system, as scrambling gets harder and goes on for longer it becomes rock climbing.

Snowdonia is a great place to get a feel for scrambling. Tryfan and the Glyders are a scrambler's paradise and were made to scramble (and rock climb) on. The awesome Crib Goch-the best ridge scramble south of the border? Cneifion arete is a brilliant grade 3 of miniature alp like proportions and the mighty Lliwedd has the long and fantastic ascent of the West Peak via the Bilberry Terrace. Whatever your level of expertise or aspirations there is something for everyone in Snowdonia.
