Climbing in Borrowdale


LDM offers full adventures days for groups, families, stag & hen parties.   These days are bespoke and tailored for your group.  

We will supply the same instructor for the full day. 

The day runs from 9:00am - 4:00pm and includes two activities, with a lunch break in between.


This day is based in the North Lakes, and is good for those staying close to Keswick, Bassenthwaite, Buttermere and their surrounding areas. 


On the day, you will meet your instructor at the Bowderstone National Trust car park, in Borrowdale 

Our morning climbing experience is an opportunity to experience the thrill of being a rock climber.

Your instructor will set up top rope systems for you to climb the wall, and be lowered back down once at the top. This is a safe and fun method to discover climbing. The difficulty can be tailored specific to the level of the group as all the climbs are rigged by the instructors on site.

During the session it may be possible to learn some new skills such as belaying, tying in and abseiling.

After lunch, the instructor will take you canyoning in Stoneycroft Ghyll

There is a change in location for this - we will supply a meeting location for the afternoon, or you can follow the instructor to the next venue. 

Stoneycroft Gyhyll is an aquatic canyon, and you will be fully immersed in the water all the way through the trip. 

There will be full demonstrations and safety briefs of how to slide, jump and descend appropriately to move safely through the environment.

We will descend using natural rock slides and toboggan runs, jump into the corkscrew and splash around in some of the clearest water in the Lake District. 

The experience can be tailored to the group, allowing for easier and harder variations depending on age and ability levels.
