Whats the aim of Gorge scrambling as an Activity?
The aim of gorge scrambling is to navigate your way up a mountain stream, beck, gill or ghyll. It can be as easy as a stream walk or as hard as climbing a fast flowing waterfall. Expect deep plunge pools and rocky traverses during this exciting activity. You can take this at your own speed and if there is something you don’t fancy doing you can always walk around it.
What does the activity include?
The activity includes all specialist equipment, instruction, and waterproof clothing and wetsuits where required.
Where does the experience take place?
We have venues throughout the north west of England, mainly in The Lake District, Cumbria.
What should I wear?
We supply waterproof clothing and wetsuits where required. You will need to wear something warm and comfortable underneath, like a thermal base layer and a fleece.
How long should I allow for this experience?
Our half day sessions last for 3 hours from start to finish including setting up and derigging time.
When does the activity take place?
We are available 7 days a week for gorge scrambling, all year round although in winter we wouldn’t do full submersion sessions.
Are there any restrictions?
There are no real restrictions, for individuals with disabilities we will choose a venue to suit your needs and extra staffing can be made available on request.
What about the weather?
The weather would need to be really bad to stop our sessions; if it turns bad on the day we would try to have an alternative activity on hand.
Can I bring spectators?
We have e few venues where spectators can view the activity from the sides, please ask about these on booking the gorge scrambling.
What else do I need to know?
