Stag Events in The Lake District. Saturday 3rd August 2013.

Brian Young booked one of our Ghyll Scrambling & Canyoning Sessions for his mate's Stag Weekend in The Lake District. The guys had travelled all the way from Aberdeen to attend this weekend away with a difference.

Our Ghyll Scrambling & canyoning Sessions in The Lake District have proven to be very popular with both Stag parties & Hen Parties visiting The Lake District over the last four years.

Photo one shows the group as they made their way up the lower part of Church Beck in what we call the Ghyll Scrambling Ascent part of the session

Photo two shows the Stag Group on Miners Bridge following the initial Ghyll Scrambling ascent of Church Beck prior to commencing the Canyoning Descent part of the session.

Many of our competitors do not offer their clients the opportunity to experience the 200m section above Miners Bridge which contains a lower down a 15 foot waterfall and a small jump into a deep pool below. However, we will always attempt to do everything that can be done at any given venue allowing you to make the most of this exciting & exhilarating experience.

On all of our Ghyll Scrambling & Canyoning Sessions in The Lake District you will receive the equipment you can see everyone here wearing and this is all provided for your comfort & safety as part of the fee. The only thing the clients had to provide themselves was a fleece type top to wear over the wetsuit/under the cagoule, swimming shorts and socks for the walking boots. We believe our equipment provision sets the benchmark for all Ghyll Scrambling & Canyoning Sessions anywhere and if you get anything less then you should be asking why!

Photo three shows the Stag having a go at the Miners Bridge Waterfall below the bridge in photo two. As with the section above the bridge, this is often missed out by our competitors offering "comparable" sessions for less money.

This challenge involves crawling backwards over the edge of the waterfall and then climbing down through the water or abseiling down to the foot of this 30 foot high fall.

In order to do this waterfall and the one above (and below) we provide you with climbing harnesses as there is no other way the two top falls could be descended safely without attachment to a rope.

At the next fall down, many businesses allow their clients to take a 15 foot jump into a very narrow slot which has resulted in a number of injuries over the years. Here, once again, we rope you past the hazardous bit and allow you to jump into the pool from a safer location.

Photo four shows Brian Young's Stag Party at the foot of the area known as The Top Jumps. Found below the Miners Bridge Waterfall, this is the narrowest part of the gorge with the deepest pools.

As previously outlined - we rope clients past the most hazardous section of the top waterfall and people can choose to jump the middle fall into the deep pool below - but only if they are confident they can jump out far enough!

The final challenge is a slide straight down the slab behind the Stag Party straight in to the pool below.

Brian's Stag Part thoroughly enjoyed their Ghyll Scrambling & Canyoning Session in The Lake District with us.
