I also have an abudence of experience within these activities and have been very grateful for the magical places it's not only taken myself, but allowed me to share with many different people all over the United Kingdom.

ROCK CLIMBING

Rock climbing takes you to some incredible places and allows you to get in some amazing positions. Whatever your ability and experience come and enjoy this exhilarating sport.

Whether it’s a taster into what climbing outside is like, perhaps you’ve done a bit of indoor climbing and fancy a bit more adventure or maybe there’s that route that you’ve always wanted to climb, but never had the confidence to have a go. 

 

Whatever you decide, I can offer you an enjoyable adventure along with learning skills along the way. Climb classic routes such as Napes Needle (HS), Troutdale pinnacle (S), Boterill’s Slab (VS), Murray’s route (S) in hopefully some warm Cumbrian sunshine.

SCRAMBLING

Are you looking for a thrilling adventure, but not quite ready for rock climbing, then scrambling is for you. Sitting somewhere between hill walking and rock climbing allows some incredible classic scrambles from Striding Edge on Helvellyn to the iconic Cuillin Ridge on Isle of Skye.

Scrambling certainly adds a further challenge whilst exploring the mountains. There are many scrambles situated in the Lake District, of all different technicalities to suit whatever ability you’re at. One of the finest scrambles would be Pinnacle Ridge on St. Sunday crag (grade 3),  an exciting jagged ridge line with interest from start to finish. Other scrambles in the Lakes include Jacks Rake, Striding Edge, Sharp Edge and many more. 

 

Outside of the Lakes, there are endless opportunities of exhilarating scrambles from the Cuillin Ridge on Skye, Aonach Eagach in Glen Coe, Crib Goch and Tryfan in Snowdonia plus many more. Whatever it may be, I’ll ensure you have an amazing time.

 

For guided scrambling in the Lakes I charge £220, with all kit included with a 1:2 maximum ratio.

WINTER SKILLS

Winter can be a very challenging time of year at the best of times, even more so when you venture into the mountains with snow, ice and the elements to contend with. Unlike summer, there are essential skills and equipment that are required to move through this majestic environment, this skills are vital. 

Despite winter being the most challenging time of year, it’s certainly one of the most rewarding. The sound of the wind whistling over the hills, or the crisp crunch of your crampons biting on the snow underfoot, it’s in this environment where having the essential skills to keep you safe are vital.

 

On this one day skills course, I will share lots of knowledge about the winter environment, including reading avalanche forecasts, gaining avalanche awareness, what kit is required in winter, how to navigate in winter, how to use winter equipment such as an ice axe and crampons, plus much more. 

 

I charge £220 for the day on a 1:2 ratio with £40 thereafter to a maximum of 6. I also don’t have a pool of winter equipment (boots, crampons, axes etc), so this can’t be hired.
