My 15yo had a great time learning to climb. Lee is a highly skilled and patient instructor. We have booked more lessons. Can't say fairer than that.

If Rock climbing isn't your thing or you're looking for something else to do after climbing with Mountain Rat Adventures, then why not take in a beautiful hill walk or embark on a scrambling adventure...


With fell walking being one of the most popular activities in the Lake District, would you like to tackle the most popular mountains? Ascend Helvellyn, Scafell Pike, Blencathra, or walk along ridges such as Striding Edge or Sharp Edge. Maybe you want to find the quiet spots, or explore lowland valleys, even explore for waterfalls. 


Scramble up a watercourse, traverse around rock pools and climb up waterfalls. The aim of this unique adventure is to stay dry whilst scrambling up a mountain ghyll. This is quite the opposite of wet ghyll scrambling, where the aim is to get as wet as possible by being in the water.
