Ghyll Scrambling, Coniston

Although Stonycroft was probably the original Ghyll, Church Beck in Coniston has fast become as popular - and for good reason! Starting off as a gentle trip UP against the water, tackling waterfalls along the way, it soon steepens and deepens into a series of pools. After several sections of great rock scrambling, we arrive at the first of the jumps into the waiting pools. For those who are feeling particularly adventurous, we can venture into the upper gorge scrambling section, where larger jumps, faster flowing pools and a heart stopping slide into thin air (landing in the water again at some point we promise!) will finish your trip off with a great splash!

NEW for 2020! Although we have always provided free photos of your activity as standard, we now offer the option of hiring our GoPro equipped helmet for only £15. We will then send you a DVD of the footage for you to enjoy at your leisure. Please say at the time of booking if you want this extra service, it really is a great way of remembering your group and the finest water experience in Coniston.

What is Ghyll Scrambling?

Impossible to describe and impossible to forget! Ghyll scrambling (also known as gorge scrambling) is always one of the Lake District favourites and involves ASCENDING a Lake District mountain stream under the safe guidance of our experienced instructors. The trip will include slides, climbs and even jumps down waterfalls into the pools, and is guaranteed to have you buzzing with adrenaline by the finish. Your instructor will guide you along the ghyll ensuring your safety and maximising your enjoyment of a truly unique group water experience!

As standard Mobile Adventure provides all our clients with high quality, well fitting wetsuits, as well as spray jackets and helmets. This means you can enjoy this amazing activity safe in the knowledge that you are wearing the best gear possible, as well as keeping warm in the waterfalls.
