Wanting to get some experience to start more technical scrambles, we booked an advanced scrambling course with Sam while on a trip to the Lakes. We had a great couple of days learning new skills, completing scrambles of varying grades and working on effective techniques for easier and more challenging routes. Sam was incredibly knowledgeable, had loads of helpful advice and made the 2 days a lot of fun, offering us the opportunity to be taught and take the lead with guidance. Sams emphasis on safety and proper technique provided reassurance when a route was a little tricky, and his teaching was exemplary throughout. If your're in the Lakes and looking to brush up your skills or try something new, we would highly recommend Lake District Mountaineering. Thank you Sam for a great couple of days!

As an eclectic bunch our ability vary wildy. The instructor Sam brilliantly read the the dynamics and personalities tailoring the challenge and support so that everyone had fun and felt safe. We have done many guided activities and Sam is the best instructor we have come across so far. We will definitely be booking more activities with him.

Will took 3 children (15, 13 &11) out at Stickle Barn. Will put the kids at ease immediately and gauged their enthusiasm (which was high) instantly. Will encouraged them to have fun safely, we will definitely be back to do more activities with you - thank you!

We had a fantastic 2 days with Sam - one day navigation skills and one day scrambling. Family of 5 with 3 teenagers. On the navigation we all learned a lot and now feel confident to set off without the fear of getting lost. Sam kept everyone engaged for the whole day and made the map reading relevant and practical. Felt tailormade - Sam pitched it at exactly the right level and was knowledgable and accommodating in answering our many questions.

Scrambling was fantastic - again pitched perfectly for our level of ability and super fun. A perfect day out for a family with teenagers. Started with scrambling up gills and progressed to ropes and Harrison Stickle. Everyone totally loved it and I cannot believe I managed to scramble up Harrison Stickle - could not have done it without Sam's confidence and professionalism and encouragement.

We've been coming to the lakes for years and these 2 days were some of the best we've enjoyed. Thank you!

Sam was a brilliant guide! He had his hands full with 8 irish adults but managed to get on board with the banter!
We had a great day out! I would highly recommend this activity!!
