Although this can involve a bit of easy climbing,

it can easily be by-passed by altering your route.

Most holds are polished and pose no problems.

Once on the ridge itself, you are exposed to the prevailing weather conditions - which may change rapidly. High winds may force you to reconsider your route to the top.

Most gorge scrambles will begin at a place where a footpath crosses the river.

 

You may not see anyone during your scramble, except at these crossing points.

 

This can be a real bonus on a hot summers day, when plenty of people are out walking in the hills!

wet feet?

 

 

Staying close to the water

 

Often in an easier grade of scramble, the most

sporting line to follow will be as close to the water

as possible. Crossing the water from time to time

is usual for the most entertaining route.

Don't slip here !

 

It is important that when climbing a section un-roped, you must not slip!

 

If you are not able to overcome an obstacle safely, then come out of the gill for a short while until you have by-passed the problem.

 

Most grade 1 and 2 scrambles have easy escape routes around any difficult sections.
