Scafell Pike is the tallest mountain in England and a fantastic accomplishment. All that said, it isnt just about standing on top of England, the journey to the top is where you will see the wonderful sights. The huge cliffs and deep gullys send the imagination wild and bring a real sense of adventure. The Corridor Route is by far the most exciting and rewarding route to the summit of Scafell Pike and once you reach the summit you will feel accomplished. Our mission at Summit and Beyond is to reconnect people with nature, inspire confidence, build resilience and teach the skills needed to remain safe in the mountains.

"Ghyll" is the Lakeland word for a mountain stream; scrambling in one is an exhilarating activity for groups young and old. You will climb up spectacular waterfalls, jump in to deep bubbling plunge pools, crawl through tunnels and slide down water polished rock chutes. A full-on wet and wild adventure for everyone! Ghyll Scrambling, gorge walking or canyoning as its sometimes known as is one of the most popular activities in the area. There is no denying it, it ours too. Our main Ghyll scrambling venue is based 10 minutes outside Keswick in the Newlands valley. However, depending on water levels, the group ability and aspirations we may use other venues across the Lake District.
