Description

Mountain scrambling is a fantastic way to explore the mountains of the British Lake District away from the main tracks. Join for a different and fun activity!

The British Lake District is the largest national park in England. Lying in the mountains of the northwest of the country, it has been recently designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

It's also a great place to practice mountain scrambling, a sport that covers the ground between hiking and climbing.

As it happens with rock climbing routes, we can classify scrambles in grades from 1 to 3. A grade 3 usually involves the use of a rope at some steeper stages and the use of both hands to reach up for the next ledge.

We can go for a single day or a 2-day trip. In fact, it's a great plan for weekends!

According to your experience and abilities, we'll choose a mountain scramble suitable for you.

One of my favorite scrambling trips is on the Old Man of Coniston. Here we can link 3 scrambles in one day and finish on the summit. We'll enjoy some great views and then walk back down through a fairly easy path. Finally, we'll go to the bar for a celebratory drink.

The British Lake District offers many opportunities for a brilliant, fun and thrilling adventure away from the most popular trails. However, this trip can be also available in other locations, like Scotland and North Wales.

You can join this trip all year round. From April to December you'll enjoy nice temperatures, although you can also come in the winter season and find some snow!

Please, contact me if you'd like to join a mountain scrambling trip with me. I will do my best to provide you a memorable adventure!

You should also take a look at this ghyll scrambling trip in the British Lake District, an exciting half-day trip in mountain streams.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
