Somewhere between hill walking and climbing is scrambling. It's a popular activity as it requires little technical skill, but at the same time is vastly rewarding. When the going gets too steep on any mountainside and your forced to use your hands, you are scrambling - it's that simple! Other than perhaps having some knee protection and gloves, there's no need for any equipment other than that you'd take with you for a day's hill walking. Typically non-technical, always fun, often hard work, it's popular in lower mountain ranges the world over..
