Introduction to Mountaineering

A mixture of rock scrambling, climbing, and walking over adventurous terrain through inspiring landscapes. All making for a top quality Mountain Journey

The Lake District is the ideal place to embark on a Mountaineering journey, as it offers many route choices at all levels of difficulty, so there is much to choose from.

The Langdale, Patterdale, Borrowdale, Coniston, Eskdale, and Wasdale valleys all offer superb days out of this nature. So wherever you’re staying in the Lake District, there are some amazing adventures for you to enjoy nearby.

We would typically begin with a short approach walk and climb an easy rock climbing route. This would lead us onto scrambling terrain with some route finding decisions to make before arriving at a rocky buttress for more scrambling or climbing taking us up to a Lake District summit.

Whilst high in the fells we may continue over more summits and include more scrambling before returning to the valley base.

These days can be enjoyed in their own right, or can provide useful training for bigger objectives such as The Cuillin Ridge.

Maximum ratio for these days is 1:2.
