Ghyll Scrambling


Friday 20th, Saturday 21st, & Sunday 22nd May  | 9:30am & 1:30pm

Have you ever wanted to go down a naturally formed waterpark? Are you brave enough to jump off the Corkscrew? Do you want to get soaked from head to toe? Then Ghyll Scrambling is the activity for you!

Sun, Wind or Rain this is the favourite activity for visitors through KMF guided acivity provider, Newlands. Ghyll Scrambling is a wet decent of a Lakeland mountain stream. Newlands are based just twenty minutes walk away from the top of the ghyll.

When you arrive you will be equipped with several layers of clothing, waterproofs, buoyancy aid and a helmet. Once equipped you will then do the 20-minute walk to the top of the Ghyll learning some history about the valley along the way!

Before the fun can begin, our instructors will introduce the safety method of scrambling, jumping and sliding required to safely make your descent down the Ghyll.

Then it is into the water, scrambling through pools, down waterslides and even jumping off waterfalls. With Newlands so close, the session can be timed to suit the prevailing weather, so it is only a short walk back to the drying room and changing facilities!

All specialised equipment is provided, however, please turn up in a base layer you don’t mind getting wet and a change of clothes for afterwards!

Pre Sales are Closed. Entries available on the day from Sports Registration on the Festival Village.
