Rock + Water Adventures!

Outdoor rock + water adventures in the lake district

ROCQUA Day, Keswick


This is our best in show! The ROCQUA adventure day will begin by warming you up with a whopping 30m climb in the Borrowdale Valley just outside of Keswick. There is no doubting that you will be wowed by the views once you have completed your climb as you look over Derwent water below. Once you have soaked up enough atmosphere at the top of the crag, you will then get the chance to descend via abseil. What better way to get yourself off the beaten track!

Later that day you will visit Newlands Valley and try your hand at our ghyll scrambling and canyoning adventure in Stoney Croft ghyll. In our opinion, this is the most fun you can have in a wetsuit!
