It is really advisable to contact us for more advice.
I booked Lee for two-and-a-half days of climbing and a day of canyoning for my 15 year-old daughter. Lee was extremely friendly and also very safety conscious. My daughter had an absolutely brilliant time and if we are ever back in the Lake District on holiday then Lee would be my first choice of instructor for these types of outdoor activity
Happy with what you've read so far? Great! Then why not take the next step and book an unforgettable Lake District experience with Mountain Rat Adventures....
