We do a regular challenge each year, this year we chose the 10 peaks in the Lake District. What really impressed me with mobile adventure was the great communication from John and his team prior to the event, all questions were answered promptly and factually.

Booked Via Ferrata for my stag do as I wanted an experience to remember with my friends other than getting hammered and being a pillock. Needless to say, it was a fantastic afternoon and something I would do again! The course instructors were very friendly and easy to get along with and gave expert guidance throughout.

This was our 2nd time using Mobile Adventure, so we chose something different being the water day, wild camping followed by Ghyll scrambling the next day. We were a party of 4 guys with 7 teenagers. John looked after us for the weekend and was very friendly, relaxed but attentive and safety conscious. He created a great programme for us... More

Although we are regular indoor climbers (albeit without ropes) we had never climbed outdoors and we thought Keswick would be an excellent place to start - it certainly did not disappoint. John took us through the unfamiliar equipment and gave us a great introduction to the world of outdoor climbing. Highly recommend giving it a go, thanks John!

We're a group of 9 booked for the Adrenalin Day.
