Whats Involved?

 Day 1:

8am: Meet at Coniston Hall Campsite (See map location below). Brief on the days events.

8:30am: Begin the day with setting off to summit the famous Old Man of Coniston reaching an altitude of 2635ft/803m and descending down Wetherlam route. Along this first challenge of the day you will venture through the old copper mines of Coniston including Low Water tarn just after, seeing the rich history that lies in the mountains, still to this day. The view from 2600+ft is outstanding, especially somewhere like the Lake District.

Day 2:

9am: Begin the day with a challenging scramble up one of the famous rock-faces in the Coniston region. Followed by a big abseil to descend (what goes up, must come down!).

1pm: Fuel up on some dinner.

2pm: Finish the day with an exhilarating mountain river scramble.

At the end of the 2 day challenge you will feel a champion!
