Stickle Ghyll Scramble – Big fun after the rain


Making a splash - Stickle Ghyll Scramble

Stickle Ghyll Scramble

Yesterday we were out for a day of Rock Scrambling and luckily avoided the heavy rain that arrived soon after we were down off the hill. This gave us dry rock to enjoy all day and 2 great scrambling routes.

After last nights rain, the Ghylls were in full flow and exciting. We were in the Langdale valley for a trip up Stickle Ghyll with a group of 9 students from Lancaster University.
Everyone got stuck in and soon there was lots of swimming going on. We jumped into plunge pools, scrambled up waterfalls, and boulder-hopped our way up the Gorge, having a whole stack of fun.

Ending this trip on a high with some huge splashes and waves in the top plunge pool. I think hot chocolates were on the cards once down at Stickle Barn Tavern.

A grand afternoon out and we finished just as the rain returned, perfect timing once again. Thanks to Rachel for organising this activity with us.

​From now until September is the best time to enjoy Gorge Scrambling and / or Canyoning here in the Lake District. If you'd like to give it a go, give us a call and let's make it happen.
