Scafell Pike (978m)
Conquer England’s highest mountain peak at Scafell Pike. We have several routes suitable for different abilities in this guided climb. Summiting Scafell Pike provides views of England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland and the Isle of Man on a clear day!
The Lake District is home to a rich and abundant variety of classic climbs, suitable for all levels and abilities. Catch the sun as you climb at Scout Crag, soak up the environs of Black Crag and Long Scar or challenge yourself with a multi-pitch climb at Dow Crag.
We have lots of options open to us as you conquer your fears and feel the breeze as you descend terrific mountain crags. Abseiling in the Lake District offers superb views that stretch for miles. Or why not try urban abseiling? Choose a building and we can arrange this for you.
The Hard Man of Coniston
