On the Lake District Scrambling Workshop we aim to tackle 4 classic Lake District Ridges; Halls Fell Ridge and Sharp Edge on Blencathra as well as the iconic Striding Edge and Swirral Edge on Helvellyn.
Where does it start?
The Lake District Scrambling Workshop will start from Threlkeld on Day 1 and Glenridding on Day 2.
You will need to arrange your own accommodation for the two days. You will need to be based somewhere around the Glenridding (Ullswater) and Threlkeld (Keswick) areas.
Is it for me?
Recent experience of summer hillwalking in the UK and a very good level of mountain fitness. Some experience of easy scrambling or steep ground would be useful but not essential. This is a challenging 2-days with some serious exposure. If you’re unsure if this is right for you, please contact us before booking.
