We were after something EXTREME and this fit the bill. The four of us had an amazing time Ghyll-scrambling with Craig; he's a great guide and a lovely bloke! Felt safe every step of the way. Great value for money too, thanks again.

Had such a fun morning rock climbing with Craig and Vickie. They provide brilliant tuition and lots of enthusiasm. It was amazing having both of them tutor just two of us. The time went too quickly! Would definitely recommend for beginner climbers.

Thoroughly enjoyed our trip with Craig, an absolute must-do. As a bunch of outdoorsy young adults we knew that this was going to be right up our street, however, having done a few other gorge walking experiences myself I have to say this was by far the best. Would definitely go back again, such good value for money and Craig... More

My girlfriend and I spent Saturday afternoon abseiling with Craig. We’d called ahead as we didn’t just want to abseil, we wanted to learn how to set everything up safely so we could go on to abseil independently. Craig was very accommodating and took the time to understand our objectives before teaching us to set up a group abseil and... More

The only MUST DO activity in the Lakes District. Craig is such a top bloke!!! He took us on a incredible adventure, scrambling up and down streams, waterfalls and jumping off the banks. Loads of laughter and fun times with the occasional brain freeze. Craigs was very encouraging and reassuring making it super easy to overcome your fears and get... More

We had so much fun doing ghyll scrambling! Check out the website to find out more information - it's got everything you need to know. We did jumps, scrambling through small waterfalls and climbing up big ones! Yes that's right we climbed up a waterfall with the water hammering directly into our faces. Some of the challenges scared us but... More

Absolutely fantastic! We were lucky with beautiful sunshine in the February half-term but I’m sure we would have had a great time even if the weather had been worse. The instructor, Craig, was very friendly and our family of four all really enjoyed his positivity and enthusiasm. We had great fun and many belly-laughs. None of us had ever been... More

After a nerve racking drive we arrived at Esk, It's down as the "big one" and it certainly was! I was a bit nervous at first as it seemed so high but it was fantastic. Would do it all again, actually I did go back and have a second jump on a few. Craig was great and put everyone at... More
