Cave Dweller

In the 1920's a 36 year old Insurance clerk from London visited the Lake District. So in love with the mountains and what he found he decided to give everything up and start a new life. This 'Professor of Adventure' was called Millican Dalton and he was a Cave Dweller for 50 years. Millican lived to a ripe old age of 79, taught rock climbing skills, bushcraft and built a raft that he would paddle into town for supplies. We won't be in a cave for as long as Millican but now it's you chance to give it a go.

On INTO THE OUTSIDE's Cave Dweller Micro Adventure you will pack a light weight ruck sack with you sleeping bag and roll matt and venture into the Lake District hills. You will visit a mighty cave, perched on a high crag face and set up camp for the night. Here we will cook dinner from our perch and look down into the valley before finally resting our heads for the night, channeling the spirit of this Lake District legend.

In the morning we will cook breakfast and look out of the caves mouth at the mist rising from the valley below before making our way back down.
