Mountain Journeys

A weekend full of activities

Group activities Lake District

Gorge Scrambling - Langdale

The last few days have been crazy busy here, with a good mix of activities going on.
On Friday Kate was guiding a group of 8 guys on the Yorkshire 3 Peaks. I won't write about that here as no doubt Kate will want to post about it.

Saturday was a restful day for Kate whilst I spent the day working for Kendal Mountaineering Services on a stag party activity. Abseiling at Hodge close in the morning followed by Gorge scrambling in Langdale during the afternoon. The forecast had been pretty poor, but actually turned out okay. And anyway, once in the gorge who cares if it's raining, waterfalls are wet and lots of fun!!

On Saturday night we were guiding a corporate group on Scafell Pike as part of a 3 Peaks Challenge event. Thanks to Tony McKenzie for helping on that and taking the fast team to the summit and back in under 4 hours, nice one.

Then during the early hours of Sunday morning Kate was over in Wasdale to guide on a Scafell Pike leg of the 3 Peaks Challenge. Again, Kate will be writing about this so i'll just say well done all for the 3h 30mins time, awesome.

After a quick recharge I spent Sunday on Pike O'Blisco with the Gibbons family from Northampton. Our Family Adventure Days are designed to engage and enthuse youngsters through continuous activity including climbing, scrambling, and abseiling. There were plenty of smiles during the day and I reckon 2 tired out children by the end of it, so a good day had by all. The sun came out and the cloud stayed high for much of the day too 🙂

Yesterday we had the pleasure of taking a visiting Indian couple Gorge Scrambling. Their first time in the Lakes and being from Bombay were used to significantly warmer conditions so I think mentioning to them that the water would be pleasant may have been stretching things a little!!! Still, a brilliant time was had and thankfully the water levels are much higher again now after recent rains.

Thanks to everyone who joined us and helped make these days a big success.
