We travelled from Sunderland to do the via Ferrata and it was absolutely worth it! We also decided to pay to do some top rope climbing and bouldering too. The staff were all super friendly. Neither my partner or myself can lead yet but there were a good few top ropes set up for us to do and the routes... More

"I loved it because of the SkyJump, an 18 metre free fall. I also like the climbing up the vertical walls and then abseiling down the walls. Jamie the coach was also awesome." - Child age 8 'The online booking and staff were super professional and inspired confidence as they strapped my child in for climbing and jumping at height.'...

Would definitely recommend paying the Lakeland climbing centre a visit. The guys at the front desk are always extremely friendly and helpful, especially the man with the beard. The facilities are superb, with enough to keep you occupied for the whole day, including a bouldering wall, and all routes are very well set.

We have taken our little one to the rock up club a few times, it's great fun with so much variety and so many options for all ages. Staff are always friendly, welcoming and knowledgable. There are so many courses for all abilities, it's a great resource in Kendal. Highly recommended. Booking essential.
