Over the last week we've had 2 large groups, including the Scottish Fire Service for a couple of days, sunny days too. We rock climbed, abseiled, and gorge scrambled in the Langdale & Coniston areas, loads of fun with so many lovely people.
And yesterday we were back in the gorge, this time with Helen, Sam, Natasha, and Louise from Norfolk. I'd previously taken Helen & Sam rock climbing, and they were now back for more to celebrate a big birthday. The plan was to go to Eskdale and the magical Esk Gorge. However, a burning clutch sadly put a stop to this and a retreat made to Langdale and the faithful Stickle Ghyll, which after heavy rain was very exciting. Loads of swimming and jumping in the plunge pools, I even went in for a swim too!
After a thorough briefing about equipment for the trek as well as what to expect, and lots of do's & don'ts we headed out onto Lingmoor Fell. Taking in the summit during improving conditions, then negotiating 'fat man's squeeze' on Side Pike, we descended to the Langdale valley for the return walk back to Elterwater, the valley now bathed in glorious sunshine.
Thank you all for joining us for adventures in the Lake District.
If you're thinking about visiting the area, or already have plans to do so and would like to try some adventurous activities, why not give us a call. We can arrange activities for individuals and cater for larger groups too. Summer is the time to be out in the great outdoors.
