Gorge Scrambling

Gorge Scrambling


Ghyll scrambling is a fun and exhilarating activity that is guaranteed to get the blood pumping! You may of heard it called various names, Ghyll, Gorge, Canyon all these mean the same thing. The only slight variation is the term Canyon, this usually means that you tackle the Ghyll from top to bottom, rather than the usual bottom to top. Some Ghyll's we use in the Lake District are best run this way as they are easier to access and are more fun.

We tackle the Ghyll using a variety of techniques, combined with additional group support to overcome natural objects, some of these include scrambling up waterfalls, ducking under logs and the ultimate test of trust...A leap of faith into a fresh water pool!
We have intimate knowledge of the best Ghyll’s that the Lakes have to offer. Most providers use Stickle Ghyll in Langdale as a ‘go to’ Ghyll, as it’s easy and quick to access. We try not to use this one, as it can be very busy and definitely over used…so we try and use Ghyll’s that have a more pioneering feel to them.

Ghyll Scrambling like with most of our other activities, can be done as a half-day activity or combined with something else – abseil, or rock climb say to make a full day’s activity.

All our activities are run by passionate experienced and fully qualified and certified instructors. We are a small organisation based in the south Lakes area and have many years experience working with a huge range of clients and ability levels. The AMI (Association of Mountaineering Instructors) logo represents quality and assurance in the outdoor field, and you know that you’re getting the ‘best of the best’ instructors when you book with us.
