WHAT customers SAY


Myself and a friend spent three amazing days with Sam (Lake District Mountaineering) rock climbing in the beautiful Lake District. The instruction and encouragement from Sam was first class. We learnt so much and gained more skills that I could have imagined.


A perfect morning abseiling at Cathedral Quarry…. Top quality instructor put us totally at ease with his knowledge, calm and professionalism and the location is absolutely stunning! Thanks so much for such a fun morning!! 100% recommended!!


My daughter and I have had a few adventures with Sam now. He’s great with her; really patient, fun and has helped her learn some basic navigation skills. Scrambling has been great and Sam has always found a route that challenges just enough to get the adrenaline going but not so much that it’s too difficult. He really knows his stuff, is interesting and makes everyone feel safe. Would definitely recommend him to anyone considering a Lakes adventure.


We look forward to hearing from you and working towards your mountaineering ambitions and helping to achieve your goals.
