Mountain Walking and Scrambling

Do the mountains speak for themselves? Perhaps, they do!  What really does speak volumes is the sense of achievement of a group getting to the top of their first big mountain, under their own steam. As an achievement, this cannot be over-estimated; it far outweighs the effort involved. There are many skills to be learnt, these group skills as well as individual knowledge and development will be useful in the future. It may also be an incentive to take up what is the most popular outdoor activity in Britain; it will certainly a day they will remember for the rest of their lives. The targets and skill levels required can be discussed prior to the visit, to ensure that all abilities are catered for.

With the mountains of Snowdonia right on the doorstep of Conway Centres: Anglesey, offering a whole variety of shapely peaks and routes up them, it is an ideal activity for those with an adventurous spirit. The routes may be straightforward, or may involve scrambling up rocky ridges, in which case the hands are often used to aid progress. The great thing about mountain walking is that with so many venue choices it is easy to ensure the group has an achievable target, whilst ensuring a suitable level of challenge. Indeed the activity is ideally suited to all age groups and abilities. Apart from getting to a summit, the reward of seeing an amazing view, spotting the local flora and fauna, gives a sense of achievement that often stays with participants for the rest of their lives.

Mountain walking and scrambling focuses on the completion of a journey and all that it entails, including motivation, group cooperation and environmental awareness. It is offered as a full day activity to allow time to develop as a team and to appreciate the scenery.
