Highlights

 
  • Enjoy the stunning scenery of England's Lake District.

  • Take advantage of this mini-Alpine route when climbing the corner pitch.

  • Learn new scrambling skills and hone existing ones.

 

Offering a miniature Alpine experience in the heart of the Lake District, Pinnacle Ridge is one of the best scrambling spots in all of England!

Rated as a Level 3 scramble, which is the most challenging both mentally and physically, Pinnacle Ridge is perfect for intermediate scramblers looking to test themselves and improve their skills. It can be done without previous scrambling experience too, if you are up for the challenge.

Over the course of our day together, we will cover some of the topics that will lead to a successful scramble, such as movement skills, route finding tips, reading the rock, technique to move more efficiently and rope techniques.

Out on the rocks, we will head over various ridges until we make it to the pinnacle. The main attraction of this route is the corner pitch (shown in the pictures above), which leads on to the main pinnacle.

Depending on your ability, some parts of the route can be skipped in order to ensure that everyone makes it to the top. However, this last part is the real “meat” of the route and we recommend everyone give this bit a try.

So what are you waiting for? Book now for a fun and exciting day of scrambling up Pinnacle Ridge in England’s lovely Lake District!

If you like the look of this trip then I think you will also enjoy my scrambling day on Broad Stand, also in the Lake District!

About the Guide

 
 

I am the owner at Rock n Ridge and have spent over 20 years enjoying the mountains of the UK & Europe. I hold the Mountain Instructors Award (MIA) which is the highest ‘summer’ outdoor qualification in the UK. Paul also holds the Winter Mountain Leader qualification, and has qualifications in Mountain Biking, Canoeing & is a Pilates instructor.

I am passionate about my work and find that I can easily build rapport with people. I decided to set up Rock n Ridge in 2017 for my love and passion of the outdoors, as well as the fun and enjoyment of sharing that love with others.

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!
