Eden Valley Adventures was asked to organize a stag adventure day for a good friend of mine John Cox, naturally I obliged. The best man asked for a Via Ferrata + Ghyll Scramble combo. We had good weather and a fresh looking bunch of eager lads excited with the day ahead met me first thing Saturday morning. Everyone completed the Via Ferrata with big smiles, and once at the bottom with a well deserved coffee refreshment it was off to the Gyhll. Keswick’s best known Ghyll scramble was pretty busy and I saw a few faces I’ve not seen in a while which was great. All the guys braved all the jumps and dives with no issues. Another ace stag party completed, see you on the 29th November John!
At Eden Valley Adventures we like to look after our customers. Apart from having a fun, safe day we like to make sure your tummies are full. We don’t want you getting to grumpy whilst out ghyll scrambling, via ferrata, abseiling, climbing or raft building. All baking is done by my lovely wife and is complementary.
Last weekend I had another stag party booked in over at Keswick. The best man asked for a raft build + ghyll scramble combo. We couldn’t have asked for better weather, Derwent water looked like a mirror. There was plenty of friendly banter being thrown about during the big build. The race was very close both rafts stayed in one piece. After lunch and the fantastic chocolate brownies my wife baked we headed for the ghyll scramble. After the jumps, scrambles and slides I had 13 very happy faces. Thanks to Rufus for getting everyone there.
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.
