Ghyll Scramble Lake District

Ghyll Scramble Lake District

Are you up for it?


Gorge Scrambling is hard to describe in a way that does the activity justice. Until you have actually done it you will never quite understand what fun it can be!

In simple terms, you make your way up the mountainside with your group in a hidden gorge. The atmosphere and sounds in the gorge are quite different from anywhere else. you'll scramble up rocks, using your hands and feet, pause to catch your breath and look back to where you have come from - WOW! You may climb a waterfall (or hide behind one) step into a crystal clear pool, slide down a rock. Basically you make the activity up as you go along - with the help of an expert guide. Eventually, you'll emerge to some of the most stunning views in England!
