Team Building & Outdoor Activities



What is Scrambling?

Scrambling is the crossover from walking to climbing. It involves climbing over, around and through jumbled rocks, boulders or rocky hillsides and ridges in mountainous areas. Scrambling may also encompass activities known as Bouldering and Weaselling. Bouldering is performing rock climbing moves at low level without the use of ropes. Weaselling is a bit like caving but above ground. The idea is to find gaps and holes between boulders to wriggle and squeeze through.

This activity is a great for teams to work together and encourage each other and for individuals to show leadership. This is a good option for an activity in the colder months as the group is kept moving at all times and the activity can be done in lots of warm clothing.
