Pinnacle Ridge: Scrambling day in the Lake District, England

Join Paul, an AMI/MIA-certified guide, for a fun and exciting day of scrambling along Pinnacle Ridge in England's lovely Lake District.


1 Day

Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep




* 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!

What people are saying about Paul



Paul is the man! Great guide.



Had a brilliant time kids loved it Paul was excellent will be definitely booking again



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.



Kirsty was our guide and she did a wonderful job, very knowledgeable and very personable. She was amazing. Highly recommend her to anyone who wants a great guide.



Despite terrible mountain conditions our guide did his best to make sure we got the most out of our trip. His special skill is keeping group moral
