A Big Day Out is just that! Based in the Lake District, these days are action packed journeys through breathtaking mountain scenery which link up classic climbs on remote mountain crags to provide an unforgettable experience. A combination of walking, scrambling and climbing at a level to suit your ability and experience will provide the ultimate yet achievable challenge!

A Big Day Out provides a mental and physical challenge beyond those posed by the single crag. It is an ideal training ground for our Cuillin Ridge trip on Skye and for people heading out to the Alps.

Depending on how many day(s) you're with us, we'll visit different parts of the Lake District, giving you different challenges on the numerous itineraries we'll put together for you.
