Scrambling above Coniston

💥 Let’s go mountaineering! 💥

Ignore the boring paths, head off-piste and get your hands on the rock! Scramble up rocky steps, slabs, chimneys and arêtes to an amazing mountain summit and take in those breathtaking view.

This page is about experiencing a beginner’s scramble as a half-day adventure experience. We also offer:

  • Scrambling courses: for those who want to learn the skills to enable them to scramble safely on their own
  • Guided scrambling: full-day ‘graded’ scrambling routes in the high mountains

Prices and loads of other information can be found by scrolling a bit further down this page.

Discounts are available for large groups – just get in touch for a price.

A great idea is to ‘mix-and-match’ to make a full day of activities, with one in the morning and another in the afternoon. See all the options here.

Rock climbing is based near to Coniston. You will be sent full details on where to meet when you book.

Anyone aged 12 and above.

Any group members under the age of 18 must be accompanied by their parent(s) or legal guardian. Sorry but uncles, aunties, grandparents, family friends etc are not classed as legal guardians.

Scrambling involves about 200m vertical ascent of tricky scrambling (hands on rock), so a relatively good level of fitness and being a naturally active person will definitely play to your advantage.

You don't need any prior experience.

There is no weight limit but we do have a maximum waist and chest size, as our safety kit will not fit a person larger than this. These sizes follow.

Maximum waist size: 150cm
Maximum chest size: 152cm

If you have any concerns, please contact us.

We will share a kit list with you when you book, but all you really need are warm and waterproof ‘outdoor’ clothes and footwear. We will provide all safety equipment such as harnesses and helmets.

We take loads of photos and we share them with you for free.

They start at either 9am or 1pm and last for 3 hours. For availability, click the blue 'Book Now / Check Availability' button above.
