Ghyll Scrambling, Gorge Walking & Canyoning

Ghyll Scrambling, Gorge Walking & Canyoning



    Fantastic full on adventure suitable for everyone and the fun you can have getting wet. Ghyll Scrambling covers a wide range of things and involves going up mountain ghyll's (streams), including climbing waterfalls, jumping into pools sliding down water chutes. These vary from dryer trips with more scrambling sometimes using ropes for support and safety to streams with boulder hopping and climbing around the water. Wetter trips are the most popular for this we use full well fitting steamer wetsuits and buoyancy aids and depending on the size, age and fitness of the group can go from smaller jumps, watershutes and watery cascades to full on waterfalls with big jumps, swims, plungepools, and other scary stuff that leaves you with a big grin on your face once you have done it.
