Had a great time!!! It was well organised and on time, Craig was really enthusiastic and fun and we felt very safe because of his guidance despite the very high jumps! It was a birthday present for my (very adventurous) wife and she had a brilliant time, as did I! The weather was a bit grey and cold but it... More

Did water scrambling with Craig and really loved it, he is a real professional not in just the actual activity, but also in interpersonal skills and he's a really nice fun person to do something like this with. My knees are destroyed but he did warn haha

We completed a Ghyll Scramble this morning with Craig from Crags Adventures. Two adults and a nine year old. We had a fantastic adventure, more than capably led by Craig, who also kept us entertained and motivated throughout! Very professional, but also very relaxed in a safe way! Our nine year old absolutely loved it and tried every challenge. It... More

I and our daughters are doing a charity abseil down the 160ft face of a London Hospital on the 12th May. Gulp! Thought it would be a good idea to try it before I throw my 63 year old body off the top of said building, so booked an afternoon abseiling with Crag Adventures. What a really wonderful day we...

Thank you very much for your excellent review! We are over the moon you enjoyed the abseiling experience ( just as well considering what's happening on the 12th May!) and felt in safe hands throughout.

Fantastic fun scrambling up Stickle Ghyll, there were eight in our group, 4 adults and 4 teenagers. We were looked after very well by Craig and Vickie, and the equipment provided was excellent (the wetsuits kept us warm despite the freezing cold water!). Would highly recommend this activity, plenty of fun for the whole family, and would certainly do it... More
