A one-day course to introduce you to Scrambling in the Lake District, an exciting and challenging way to ascend your favourite summits away from the crowds. Good scrambling routes follow broken rocky ground requiring careful footwork, simple rock-climbing skills and a good head for heights. The severity of the scrambles undertaken will be tailored to your present ability from the classic Jack’s Rake on Pavey Ark (grade 1) to more complex grade 2 scrambles where the occasional use of ropes will be needed
You should have experience of hill walking and be happy on the classic walkers’ ridges such as Striding Edge or Sharp Edge indicating you have a good head for heights and steeper terrain and a reasonable level of fitness.
These course sessions are solely for you and your friends/family as a private booking, you are NOT joined to any other group.


Guided Walks £40 per person

Our Lake District Guided Walks are aimed at walkers who would like to explore the Lake District fells under our expert guidance without the need to have good navigation skills. The Guided Walks are graded from easy to hard. Due to COVID you can book as a single household such as a private individual, a couple, a family or friends living together. Our walks run in the summer months from Easter to September and as winter walks in Dec-March.
