Scrambling is a hands-on sport and without the stop-start of rock climbing, the joy of it can be appreciated more freely. Here, Alan Tees guides mountaineers to exhilarating scrambles in some of the most beautiful parts of the country. All abilities are catered for in these graded routes, from straightforward scrambles to serious routes where the ability to abseil is required. Each route is described concisely and simply so you can keep your head up to enjoy the stunning surroundings. Clear maps and photos showing the ascent line complement descriptions that include historical trivia and all the necessary information: grid references, time and equipment needed, height gain, OS map references, directions and what to expect as you climb. Visiting these invigorating places is an adventure in its own right, but reaching them by scrambling adds to the euphoria of experiencing a rarely visited place.
