I had the pleasure of accompanying the person who I help care for who is severely disabled. He had an amazing time and loved all the activities that were customer to his needs. Brilliant teamwork and nothing was to much for them

A weekend in Keswick celebrating a friend's 50th was finished in style by an exhilarating scramble down a ghyll (mountain stream)... Our instructor, Dom was superb - relaxed, informed and assured.

At 11C and windy, it felt cold, but two wet suits made a huge difference and once in the water it wasn’t half bad. Great organisation and impressive guiding from Dom - light-hearted most of the time, but he subtly clicks into serious mode when...More

Hi Peter, I will pass on your great feedback to Dom, he has worked very hard over the last few years and I never hesitate to let him loose with our groups. Ghyll Scrambling certainly is one of our personal favourites too. See you again...More
