This week saw EVA freelancing for TQ for a princes trust week. After the group arrived at the Langdon Centre on Tuesday we had an evening walk to Hayeswater Tarn with fine weather. Day 2 was the climbing and abseil day over at Thornhow crag and finnish off ice cream on Ullswater lake. Day 3 was a day of two halves the morning session was a walk from Dockray down to Aira Force then a drive round to Howtown and a walk to Kailpot for some low level lake Traversing. Our last full day had us Orienteering at Winlatter then Ghyll Scrambling at Stoney Croft Ghyll. A fine week with the group pleased as punch.
So last week saw us working on an AT package for the new recruits from the Rifles and Guards at Halton Training camp. The first day was kayaking on coniston with stunning weather all the lads really enjoyed them selves, a few swimmers.
Second day was Abseiling at Cathedral quarry a few refusals so we set up a smaller Abseil for four of the lads, a pint of man up was needed for a few of them.
Day three was kayaking at Devils bridge river lune, we ran the rapids and i had the lads in my group have a go at side surfing which was fun to watch.
Day four climb and Abseil this time at Tilberthwaite Quarry, the heavens opened but we soldiered on ( pun intended ).
Overall a successfully week.
The seasons looking to be a busy one with bookings coming in thick and fast. The stag and Hen combo packages looking to be the Favourite at the moment closely follow by military adventurous training courses. A great Stag/ Hen combo day would be Ghyll Scramble & Abseil or Ghyll Scramble & Via Ferrata, the choice is yours. See you soon.
David Moir and his mates had a great day’s activities with us on Saturday, there morning session of Ghyll scrambling was a bit on the chilly side but at least the sun was out. The afternoon session of Abseiling went down a treat having a few of the lad out of there comfort zone, by the end of the day big smiles all round from everyone. I apologise for not having any photos due to the fact that our freelance instructor Stuart left the camera that I gave him at home ( nice one Stu ). Stag parties, Hen Parties Eden Valley Adventures Lake District.
We have 10 lads booked in for a days worth of fun and excitement on Saturday really looking forward to it. In the morning they are Ghyll Scrambling in Stoney croft Ghyll in the Newlands valley. After lunch we’ll venture off to do a spot of Abseiling in the Borrowdale Valley, so much fun to be had in the stunning lake district Cumbria. I’ll post pictures Saturday evening.
