Sam was a fantastic guide, he planned the day well for our experience. Took us to one of the most scenic climbing spots in the Lake District, we did 2 classic big multi pitch routes on the Dow crag and some scrambling. Great day out - I would recommend Sam and Lake District mountaineering.

Climbing in Eskdale

Our day out with Sam couldn’t have been better. LDM was extremely responsive organising our trip, with a super simple booking process.
On the rocks, Sam was extremely patient and provided a great atmosphere to help us grow on our trad journey. Hope to be back some day!

Belaying a lead climber

I had a truly wonderful time. Sam was highly professional, nice company and at no point did I feel rushed or that I was going slowly. I felt well taken care of and as a consequence by the second day I really felt my confidence soaring. Addictive. I want to go again today.


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