Rock scrambling offers the chance to move through steep, rocky terrain without the need for rock climbing equipment.
This means we move quicker, cover more ground, and improve our skills with each step. The situations are often steep and the views always superb. It’s a great adventure for all with plenty of challenge whatever your current ability.
For high grade, difficult rock scrambles, we use ropes. This would be borderline rock climbing terrain. For some sections of this type of terrain we may revert to using rock climbing systems, and for the more straightforward sections we scramble freely. This makes for a challenging, satisfying, and fun day out.
Will it be tiring, yes most likely!
Half or full day scrambles can be arranged and will involve one or more scrambling ascents of Lake District mountains.
Our aim will be to use easy to reach scrambling terrain in the Langdale & Coniston valleys, near to Ambleside & Windermere. We focus on getting plenty of time on rock whilst moving through the mountains in a variety of settings.
The routes will be in some of the following areas:
You may already have an idea as to what you would like to do and where. A specific route in mind maybe.
Or are you walking all the Nuttalls or Birketts and wish to scale Pillar Rock?
This is at the very top limit of what we would call scrambling and is included in the current rock climbing guides to the area. A rope is essential for an ascent & descent of Pillar Rock. Whilst the scrambling / climbing is never too difficult, the steepness and exposure are severe! A day out to remember.
All offer the finest scrambling terrain in Lakeland.
