The days walk with local guide John, was very enjoyable and relaxing. John is very pleasant and knowledgeable, and gave us good advice and encouragement, helping us achieve our goal of reaching the top of the highest mountain in England. John is brilliant at what he does. We would highly recommend booking Open Ascents to have a enjoyable and safe days walking in the hills. John our guide

This was our first occasion using Open Ascents , even though we climb bi-annually in the lakes. Very professional service and our guide Sam was knowledgeable and informative. In addition he didn't just through the motions , but made an effort to make the day interesting. He was determined to find a Bothy that was difficult to locate ...in use at the time of our discovery...Eggs and Bacon on the stove

It was my first time taking my children to the Lake district and a friend had told me how amazing a company called Open Ascents was and that they can organise all of our activities for us and have the equipment needed. As I was going on my own with Twin girls 8 and a boy of 10 I thought this would be a great idea. I really did underestimate how good these guys are. Me and my children had the best time together and made memories that will never fade a way. I never thought we would do so many cool actives and what the children would accomplish. We had the pleasure of having John, Ben, Clif and Bryan throughout the 4 days we had booked with Open Ascents. They was really supportive to me and the children throughout the activities and made us feel incredibly safe. I highly recommend booking these high class professionals for your activities (They might not tell you this but they are also part of the mountain rescue team) You could not be in safer hands!

I booked 5 days with the Open Ascents team to try to take the next steps of extensive hill experience but no proper climbing experience into being able to start to lead climb. John was an excellent patient instructor, with the right combination of challenge and confidence in safety. Each day felt like consolidation and progression. I learned a huge amount AND it was such good fun. 100% recommend.
