What a pleasant 8 days I’ve had down in sunny Tenby south wales, for the first 4 days anyway. Myself and Bruce Johnson who freelances for Eden Valley Adventures had a glorious 4 day days on Llys – Y – Fran reservoir running kayak sessions for Buckinghamshire army cadets. The second half of the 8 days become wet and wind but with the shelter from the dam wall we still managed the sessions. All the instructors stayed at Penally camp, are evenings were spent either in the officers mess or walking around Tenby checking out the sea cliffs for climbing routes. A great 8 days work.
Kelly and her pals drove up to the lake district this past weekend for a hen party and where chuffed to bits with there day. The morning session was an Abseil over at the national trust abseil in the Borrowdale Valley, well done ladies you all made it. There afternoon session of Ghyll scrambling was a blast, happy faces at the end. All in all a successful day.
Today Bruce and i drove out to Esk Gorge in Eskdale for a spot of ghyll scrambling, what a pleasant fun day we had. After the 1 & half hour drive we reached our destination and bumped in to some friends doing the same thing, Cliff and Craig. We set off for the 40 min walk up the ghyll till we arrived at the sheep fold where we get changed. From here we set off exploring this magnificent ghyll with crystal clear water. There is plenty of bolder scrambling and waterfall climbs which are ace but what this ghyll has under it’s sleeve are the big jumps. A couple of the jumps i had a word with myself , man up and get on with it. I can’t put in to words how much fun this ghyll scramble is. If you think you have what it takes give Eden Valley Adventures a call and book in a session.
What brilliant weather we had this bank holiday weekend, i always remember it being wet and windy over easter, let’s hope it’s always like this now. So we had a group out over at stony croft ghyll near keswick, Lucy and her friends fancied a go at ghyll scrambling and had a right scream. All the jumps and scrambles were done with no backing out, well done guys. If you fancy trying out this adventurous activity click the link bellow for more details.
