Went Ghyll scrambling as a couple. Lisa was our instructor, she was brilliant! We had such good fun. My husband wanted to do the jump again and again. Would definitely recommend this company.

Highly recommend ghyll scrambling with Mobile Adventure. Our instructor John was fantastic, really friendly and made the experience. The session was a mixture of slides, jumps and abseiling.
