Sam was our guide for the day. He took us through some basic navigation before setting off from Dungeon Ghyll. The weather was lovely which always helps.
Sam built on our skills throughout the walk. He was patient, relaxed, kind and encouraging, he really gave us great foundation skills so we can take ourselves up the hills safely. Sam has a fantastic skill set and attitude, we thoroughly enjoyed our day out and would use the company again. Thanks Sam!

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!
