“Ghyl Scrambling”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

Great experience. Did this as part of a stag do. Was more than I expected it would be.

Started with a 20 minute walk up a hill to the top of a ghyl (small stream). That was prety strenuous especially as we were all wrapped in 4 layers of clothing.

Then proceeded to descend the ghyl, jumping and diving off waterfalls into pools and sliding down rocks into shallow pools. Fairly challenging but well worth it.

All of the staff were excellent, felt totally safe the whole way round. Couldn't praise them enough.
