This is a big one, a full day adventure!
This session is up 5 hours long
The Esk Gorge is located in a huge mountain valley just outside Eskdale.
We will meet you on location at the base of the Hardknott Pass and provide you with all the equipment needed for a full day gorge scramble.
We advise to bring a rucksack/bag (30 litres) to carry into the valley as we will walk for 40 minutes to get to the start point.
After a safety briefing we are straight in at the deep end.
The first of the big jumps gets the heart racing as you jump into the crystal clear pool below.
As we head upstream there will be lots of scrambles, some short climbs and some swimming.
It is advisable that you have some swimming ability, but buoyancy aids are provided.
As we gain height, we will scramble over waterfalls, swim in the many pools and the jumps will come one after the other.
Each one into deep, crystal clear water.
The scenery all around is truly stunning.
The finale is a huge jump over a cascading waterfall - this is the ultimate cliff jumping experience.
We advise booking this if you're looking for a big dose of adventure.
