What an experience. Walking around the Langdales and Old Man of Coniston was incredible and Jacko was a brilliant guide who taught me everything I needed to know. The introduction to scrambling up Tarn Crag and Jack's Rake was brilliant and I can't wait to go on to Helvellyn and other big walks and climbs around the Lakes or maybe somewhere across the UK. Thank you Mountain Adventure, my highest recommendation

Fantastic experience! There were five of us booked on for an afternoon of abseiling. The instructor was very friendly, welcoming and encouraging. One of our friend is mortally afraid of heights but decided on having another go after her first turn! This wouldn't have been possible if the instructor wasn't was good as he was!!

We were also blessed by the presence of a choir singing in the Cathedral Cavern at the time of our session (which I was told is very rare!) and the grand background music elevated an already fantastic afternoon to greater heights (pun intended!)

Highly recommended, and I would definitely would look to do something more with them when I return to the Lakes.

I completed all three of Jack's Night Navigation training sessions held in Dec, Jan & Feb 17/18 in the Langdales (Lake District). Jack is a really experienced all round mountaineer but more importantly, he is a fantastic instructor; very laid back, very knowledgeable and very good at imparting that knowledge and experience. I would strongly recommend him for anyone wanting a great adventure in the mountains.

Id like to thank Jack for the most amazing morning of bouldering and rock climbing. My boys aged 6 and 8 loved very min of it.... I even got to have a climb after a morning of beylaying... I've enjoyed it so much I'm planning on doing another class with Jack in the summer.

Jack is an awesome animated fun and inspiring teacher bringing the best out in everyone.

My husband and I had a real rock climbing experience with Mountain Adventure, I couldn't recommend Jack and his company strongly enough. What a day!! We had both climbed a little in an indoor wall but fancied something different and a bit more challenging, Mountain Adventure delivered this in a safe and comfortable way, amercing us in the wildness that the Lakes has to offer. We cant wait to book in again!
