Scrambling is a grey activity between mountain hiking and rock climbing and a natural progression for adventurous hikers.
It requires a good head for heights coupled with fitness and agility.
Many of our Costa Blanca Mountain Hikes include some basic scrambling sections but for more progressive routes we use ridges such as Monte Castellets West, Peña Severino, Ponoch East and Segária East with short multi pitches of scrambling grades 2 to 3.
The duration of these scrambles can vary between 20 minutes to several hours depending on the size and experience of the group. Rope back up and belays are always available and only experienced scramblers are allowed to join us on the more extreme scrambling routes.
Grade 3 scrambling often includes an abseil to exit the summit.
Scrambling beyond grade 3 would be classified as free climbing.
Scrambling is adventurous and exciting and allows you to explore more dramatic and hidden crags and summits that are not accessible through normal hiking activities.
