Stoneycroft Ghyll


Ghyll scrambling is the most popular outdoor adventure that Keswick Adventure Centre do and one that people come back for time after time.

If you are over 7 and up for it, then we'd love to take you. Ghyll scrambling has many names, Gill scrambling, Gorge Scrambling and Canyoning. Despite the term 'Scrambling' usually meaning to 'go up' this term means up or down in Ghyll Scrambling - Down being the biggest adrenaline rush....and only a 5 minute drive from our kit store(where you will meet us) to Stoneycroft Ghyll.

It can be as wet or as dry as you like as you follow one of many streams, becks and gorges. The only way to describe this activity is to say that it's like caving with the roof off. In this ghyll, there are many slides, rock traverses, rocky obstacles and jumps and dives into plunge pools. You won't believe how much fun ghyll scrambling is until you've tried it!

Here at Keswick Adventure Centre we expertly guide you either 'up' Honister Ghyll or 'down' Stoneycroft ghylls - why not spend a whole day getting wet and do both ghylls? This is for the crazy only!

Ask anyone who has done this activity about the infamous "Washing Machine" in Stoneycroft Ghyll and book a date for the thrill of your life.

Start Times: 10am and 2pm

Duration: 2.5 hours

What to bring: A change of underwear, shorts (to wear OVER our wetsuits), trainers and socks, towel.

Don't forget dry clothes for afterwards!
