Based in the beautiful English Lake District and run by local mountaineering & climbing instructor and Mountain Rescue Team Member, Si Withington, we offer a range of professionally run courses and instruction, plus private guiding in the mountains of the Lake District, Snowdonia and the Scottish Highlands.

Welcome To Lakeland Ascents

Our range of professional mountain skills courses and guiding gives us an enviable reputation. Regardless of whether you’re looking for a qualified instructor to help you develop your mountaineering or climbing skills, a mountain guide to lead you up Scafell Pike or host a team challenge event, or learn how to navigate in a far corner of the Lake District, our team can help.

Our mountain training courses will give you skills you need to fully embrace the outdoors in any season. From courses for beginners through to advanced winter skills training we can prepare you with all the knowledge you need.

Our website features set courses and guiding packages but we’re always able to provide flexibility or create a bespoke course to meet your needs.
