Ghyll Scrambling Sessions in The Lake District. Wren Gill, Monday 9th August 2016.

Last Monday afternoon, we were out again - up to our necks in it! Ghyll Scrambling seems to be just about the most popular thing we are getting bookings for at the moment - and that's good news.

Ghyll Scrambling is definitely one of those "out there" activities that should be one everyone's bucket list! Getting a soaking in a mountain stream - what!, but once you've tried it, you can't stop talking about it and the great fun you've had.

When Louise Cawthorn booked a Ghyll Scrambling Session in The Lake District with us, she had heard from others who had been and tried ghyll scrambling in the area. The family were coming from the east coast of Yorkshire for a few days and were keen to try it out for themselves.

The family were planning to stay near Kendal and enquired about Ghyll Scrambling with a number of Outdoor Activity companies. We were one of the few who replied; and the only one to be offering a Ghyll Scrambling Session close to town.
Wren Gill is a mere six miles north of Kendal whereas the next nearest suitable ghyll Scrambling venues are over 20 miles away  in Langdale and near Coniston. We will usually meet you at the  Morrisons Superstore on the north east side of town and then you will follow us up the narrow road leading through Longsleddale to the parking area at Sadgill where we get kitted up ready for your Ghyll Scrambling Session.

From Sadgill to the Ghyll Scrambling venue is a further 1.5 mile walk up the track that leads to Gatesgarth Pass. However, if your group size is no more than 5 or six persons, then we will transport you up the track in our vintage 56 year old Land Rover - there can't be many other companies operating in the Lake District or indeed - in the UK where you get to enjoy some off roading  in a classic vehicle as part of your Ghyll Scrambling Session!
Once at Wren Gill, you'll be able to enjoy a Ghyll Scrambling Session in a venue offering plenty of variety - steeper sections with easy waterfalls to climb and some deep pools interspersed with gentler, shallower sections where even the smallest child can enjoy playing in the river.

As you can see from these photos, the Cawthorn family enjoyed a fun & exhilarating Ghyll Scrambling Session in The Lake District with us that involved jumping into deep pools and being lowered down waterfalls as well as climbing up them.

Today's session lasted almost the full four hours that we offer in a half day and at £45 per adult and £30 per child offered superb value and great fun that the family will remember for a long time.

Whilst it's warm & sunny - contact us to book your very own family Ghyll Scrambling Session in The Lake District - you won't be disappointed!
