Rock Climbing

Close

In the summer of 1886, on the last day of his holiday, Walter Parry Haskett Smith set off for a close look at the cliffs on the face of Great Gable. Warmed by his exertions, he succumbed to the temptation to try for the summit of the Napes Needle. He and others had reconnoitred the spire on several previous occasions, but had failed to climb it. On this day Haskett Smith succeeded, and he reached the tiny summit by himself, using no ropes or equipment. The Lake District is now home to some of the Uk’s finest and best known classic rock routes.

Follow in the footsteps of the Victorian Pioneers in the company of a highly experienced Mountain Instructor, and experience climbing for yourself.
All of our climbing programmes including venues and duration are bespoke and exclusively tailored to the needs of the individuals taking part.

We provide a large range of climbing courses to suit all needs, and tailor them all for you so please call us for an informal chat to gain a more comprehensive picture of what you could achieve...

Family Adventure

Close

Time is precious and as parents ourselves we understand the specific needs of families, and as in response we have tailored the majority of our activities to meet these needs. We have rock climbing venues that are close to roads and easily accessible canoe launch sites, both of which are suitable even for very young children. We have resisted putting a specific lower age limit on our activities as physical size and maturity are more relevant. As an example we have had children as young as three experience rock climbing. Don’t worry if you are first timers as we will take things at your pace, we also have a comprehensive range of equipment from waterproofs to fleece jackets, hats & gloves as well as walking boots and rucksacks, so no need to shell out on clothing for the family. Below is a small selection of activities, but more accurate information can be obtained by calling us.

La'al Ratty Activities

Close

The La’al Ratty is a miniature steam railway that runs year round from Eskdale to Ravenglass on the Cumbrian coast.
We have developed a range of journey based activities in conjunction with the Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway.
The journeys all begin in Eskdale and end in Ravenglass, and the price includes a one way ticket back to Eskdale on the fantastic La’al Ratty.
Picnics can be arranged by West lakes Adventure on request

~Ramble & Ratty~
A memorable journey on foot accompanied by one of our local guides. You have a choice of two routes both beginning in Eskdale Green. The low level route follows the picturesque Eskdale Bridleway for 8½ miles, whilst the high level route traverses Muncaster fell and provides stunning views of the Lake District fells and the Ravenglass Estuary, with the Solway Coast beyond. During the 3 – 4 hour walk your guide will provide in-depth knowledge and information about local history, the local environment and its wildlife. Both routes pass by through the grounds of Muncaster Castle and the well preserved ruins of a Roman Bath house before heading into Ravenglass for the 7 mile return journey to Eskdale on the La’al Ratty which takes 40 minutes.

~Ride & Ratty~
Accompanied by a qualified mountain bike guide your party will ride 8½ miles along the picturesque Eskdale Trail to Ravenglass. The ride follows an easy non-technical track and the route is similar to that taken by the low level route featured in the Ramble & Ratty section.
Mountain Bikes can be provided by West Lakes or feel free to use your own, providing they meet our minimum safety standards. The 7 mile return journey to Eskdale on the La’al Ratty takes 40 minutes.

~River & Ratty~
Under the guidance of a qualified British Canoe Union Coach, journey down the River Esk in 2 person open canoes whilst developing your canoeing skills. The river begins in a mountain environment and descends a number of small safe weirs that are easily navigable; it then evolves into a tidal river as it meanders towards the Ravenglass Estuary. We then use the outgoing tide to assist the journey for the last couple of miles into Ravenglass before returning on the La’al Ratty.
