  • Price from £50.00

  • Microadventure


Sourmilk Ghyll scramble is recognised in many guidebooks to the Lake District. It is a fantastic scramble that is relatively technical, however, the difficulty is hugely variable depending on the line chosen and the volume of water. It can be tackled as wet or dry activity in both ascent and descent, and it can also be combined with a longer excursion onto the crags of Gillercombe above. The central slabs provide the meat of the difficulty, however, it remains interesting and challenging throughout.


Typically, we will meet you in Seathwaite (see map below) at a time of your choice. We’ll then kit you up with the equipment you need and get going. The start of the ghyll is just a few minutes walk, and the activity itself usually takes around 2-3 hours.
