What is Ghyll Scrambling ?

Ghyll Scrambling is a fantastic activity for families or groups, as well as couples, and can be as challenging as you want it to be.
Ghyll Scrambling involves scrambling up or down the gorge, jumping in pools, sliding down slides, traversing rock pools, climbing waterfalls and generally having fun in the water.

Why should I do Ghyll Scrambling with climb365?

We love taking groups ghyll Scrambling and have been working and enjoying taking groups ghyll Scrambling in the Lake District for over 20 years.

We have a vast knowledge of the different ghyll Scrambling venues and how the water levels change and effect the safety.

We will chose the best  venue for you as a group and for the water conditions. We think ghyll Scrambling is a fantastic activity and work hard to make your ghyll Scrambling adventure as fun as possible.
