We had the best time Ghyll Scrambling with Crags Adventures. Despite the fact it was January and there was a chill in the air we were toasty warm - due to the top quality gear provided. Craig is a fantastic guide, very knowledgeable and encouraging....More

Superb equipment, loads of layers and didn’t feel the cold at all, despite being late November! My wife has Raynauds but Craig provided gloves which worked great. Craig exudes infectious enthusiasm, we felt challenged/out of our comfort zone, but always safe - top guy.
