Guided mountain days

I'll show you some brilliant parts of the Lake District, choosing a route perfect for the conditions and catered specifically to you. I'll make all the decisions so you don't have to, and create an adventure whatever the weather. 

Suitable for families, groups, new walkers, or those up for a challenge. 

Guided classic scrambles

Fully guided classic scrambles and big mountain days in the Lake District.

Independent scrambling skills

Scrambling - that grey area in between hill walking and rock climbing, with arguably more room for errors and misjudgement, and often on consequential and loose ground

Learn the rope work skills, route reading, problem solving and mountain knowledge needed to move towards independent scrambling and big mountain journeys. 

1 - 2 people maximum.

A one day booking will give you an introduction to these skills, 2 -3 days booked will enable a more thorough progression, especially if you come with no prior rock climbing knowledge
