Join me for an action-packed and fun-filled day of underground via ferrata, rock climbing and abseiling in England’s lovely Lake District!

We’ve got a full itinerary, so we’ll be sure to meet up the morning and start our adventure. Trips can be tailored to you and your group’s exact needs, so let me know ahead of time and we’ll get everything sorted.

Our adventure begins from the bottom and from there we head up. We start with some underground via ferrata in some man-made mines. We’ll enjoy climbing through the network of cables and exploring the labyrinth of walkways and bridges.

Once we’re done in the mine, we will head back above ground for some climbing and up a local rock face. We’ll achieve some heights you never though possible, all with only some simple instructions and a bit of equipment.

Our day will conclude with some excitement as we abseil and rappel back down a rock face. There will be various heights and spots from which we may choose, making this perfect for adventurers of every level. Just gear up, lean back and enjoy the way down.

So what are you waiting for? Book now for this excellent day of multiple adventures in the Lake District!

If you like the look of this trip then I think you will also enjoy my multi-adventure day of canyoning, zip lining, aerial walking and free falling, also in the Lake District!

Had a great day out with my instructor Paul who was very helpful in introducing me to trad climbing and getting me to be very comfortable on the rocks. We did six 1-pitch climbs and one multi-pitch climb while enjoying the phenomenal view of Langdale amongst many Herdwick sheeps. Would have extended the experience if I had more time and definitely would do it again.

Had a great day out climbing with Paul and his lovely dog Harry. Paul was a wealth of information for us. We came over from America and he was even so helpful to give us a lift. Super friendly wish would had more time for another day of climbing!
