However, for those with a little more time and wishing for a wilderness experience, let us introduce the Esk Gorge.
The approach walk is about 45 minutes of gentle uphill, this keeps the crowds away. The scenery is superb, as pretty as anything in Lakeland. As soon as we arrive, there's an entry jump of about 8ft into deep water. If you were at all sleepy, you're not anymore!
And from here on up, it's swim, jump, scramble, jump, swim, scramble and so much more. The surroundings are spectacular, so much so, I find it hard to describe!
Josh and all his pals were all super keen and well up for the adventure. No hesitations on any of the jumps, just point and go, well cool. Nice one lads.
We made really fast progress up the gorge, and had time and energy left over to go for the 'BIG' jump as a finale.
Lovely sunny day, low - moderate water levels too. Couldn't have asked for better conditions or a more willing team.
Thanks to Joe for helping and to Josh and the team.
