Had a fantastic 3 days in Wasdale and Eskdale in the Lake District. Being new to the outdoor game we sought the expertise of Carolclimb and did an afternoon of “paddling” (kayaking), a full morning of rock climbing and then an afternoon’s hike over the top of the Eskdale valley. Carol and Richard were wonderful. Friendly and professional they gave us all the help and guidance we needed and whilst they encouraged us to push ourselves they didn’t pressurize us and let us “discover” things for ourselves, just adding bits of advice at appropriate moments. My girlfriend, who was a bit nervous, particularly about the rock climbing, found she really could do it and the confidence Richard and Carol instilled was essential. They then took us for an amazing walk over the dale, pointing out all the points of interest and telling us ghost stories! It really was like being with friends. Really got the outdoor bug - next time we might even brave the Ghyll scrambling with them!

carolclimb outdoor activites. A Superb days adventure!!!

We had a great day both canadian canoeing and climbing the trip along Wastwater in a canoe was awesome, travelling back under the Wasdale scree's was very impressive. even though I have visited the Wasdale Valley for many years, the views from the lake were amazingly unique . Climbing in the afternoon was superb it was pitched just right, we started on easy climbs to build our confidence then increasing difficult to challenge our abilities. It was great!!!
I would like to thank Carol and Richard for their tuition and input throughout the day. It was a pleasure to be with instructors who have such a deep knowledge, respect and love for the outdoors.

We will be coming back to do a 2 day canoeing expedition camping and fishing down the Borrowdale/ Derwent Valley.

A superb day with really great people.

E. G. and Family
