All-day Mountain Scrambling

Full-day mountain scrambling up the entire mountain, aiming for the summit!

We signed up for an afternoon of ghyll scrambling and we weren’t quite sure what to expect. What we got was a fantastic afternoon – climbing up and down river banks, diving into the water (with wet suits!) and generally challenging ourselves under the watchful eye of Stuart …

“not just plodding… engaging, challenging, a full day journey scrambling up the mountain”

We just love being in the mountains and scrambling is an awesome way to gain height while enjoying being in such a beautiful place. It’s a fantastic group activity and is accessible to everyone. There are so many brilliant scrambling routes in the Lakes that we can introduce you to.

This is a full-day session page where you can book a whole day journeying up the mountain. We’ll set off taking lunch with us for an all-day mountain scrambling day.  If you think a full day would be too much or if you want to do an alternative session in the afternoon for variety we also offer mountain Scrambling as a half-day session.

Alternatively, we offer technical courses where you can experience Mountain Scrambling Courses and Guiding.

All levels are catered for. No experience needed.

This day is billed as “level 3” and we will adjust and make the day suitable for your group. There are many “lines” or routes to take and this enables the level to be dictated by your aims and aspirations for the day.

We often bring harnesses and helmets for these days enabling us the option to take on whatever level of challenge you desire. We’ll chat to you in the morning and make suggestions and enable you to make an informed decision guided by us.

Again as these days are for you please do get in touch with any questions or if you just want to talk through options and get some ideas from us.

We are very used to taking complete beginners who are really nervous and experienced scramblers alike.

There are so many amazing Mountains to scramble up and we usually enjoy taking people into the stunning Langdale valley to experience the Langdale Pikes.

We will meet in Langdale at the National Trust Stickle Ghyll car park.

If you do have a particular mountain that you’ve heard of and would like to do that instead, or have the wish to chat about options do get in touch and we’d love to talk you through what would be the ideal day for you and your group.

Half-day sessions run as follows:
Morning 9:30 am to 12:30 pm – Afternoon 1:30 pm to 4:30pm. That’s three full hours of activity.

Full-day sessions run as follow:
9:30 am to 4:30 pm. That’s seven full hours of activity.

We realise how valuable your time is and this reflects in our attention to giving you a full session. We always get to the meeting venue early arrange our kit and make sure we are ready to go. This enables us to optimise the contact time with you, giving you real value for money and attention to your experience.

Half-day activities are really fun and do combine very well with other activities. E.g. many people book rock climbing or abseiling in the morning and ghyll scrambling or canyoning in the afternoon.

These half-day combinations and our all-day sessions can be viewed here: Mix n Match options on this page here.
