Scrambling in the Lake District

Scrambling is a combination of single pitch Rock-climbing and Fell Walking. It involves ongoing small climbs up a steep ascent and although it is not clinging on to sheer rock faces with just your fingertips, you are roped up with a harness & helmet for safety. The beauty of this adventure is that it allows you access to areas beyond the casual hill-walker's reach. Up there among truly impressive scenery, your journey will take you up 1000ft to a stunning view across the Lakeland fells and a real sense of achievement.

Scrambling Activity Days

Adventure Days

Abseil & Scramble Adventure Day

This Abseiling and Scramble Adventure Day is a rewarding adventurous, adrenaline packed day! The day begins with a scramble up Raven Cragg, which includes some walking and Single Pitch climbing - within half an hour you will begin to admire the beautiful views across Coniston and over to Helvellyn. With magnificent views to set up camp for a spot of lunch, there really are some great photo opportunities. For the afternoon, a walk over to Cathedral Quarry which offers the chance to explore old mining caves and tunnels, and gives the choice of different height abseils. Once you have completed the challenge of lowering yourself down the rock face, with the rush of adrenaline, a short walk brings you back to the starting point.

Climbing Adventure Day

The Climbing adventure day consists of Climbing, Scrambling and Abseiling around the Pike O'Blisco, or comparable venue, with the option of a walk to the top to see the fantastic views. On this day you can... • Learn more about climbing • Further your existing knowledge • Learn how to belay • Learn how to place natural protection in rock • Learn to set up belays • Learn about Climbing calls • Push your grade • Practice Climbing techniques • Do some Bouldering • Get out into the hills, only half an hour from the road.

Stickle Ghyll and Jack's Rake Adventure Day

This is a fantastic scrambling day for people who like rock and a challenge. We start in Stickle Ghyll which is often used for half day gorge walking but continue up higher than usual, all the way to Stickle tarn for a spot of lunch. The challenge then is to conquer Jack's Rake - a grade 1 scramble, cutting diagonally across a slab of rock, high up on the Langdale fells. Great views to reward the challenge. This is a challenging day which is reflected in the minimum age of 14 years old.

Tarn Beck Adventure Day

Our adventure day starts very gently in the beck right next to the road, but before you know it there's a little waterfall to clamber up and then pools and rocks and a proper narrow rocky gorge to go through. We then wind our way up Seathwaite Tarn, including a grade 1 scramble and the discovery of a hidden tarn. Tarn Beck and Seathwaite Beck can each be done as 1/2 days. Tarn Beck may involve travelling a short distance in vehicles mid session whilst wearing wetsuits.
