Professional mountain training, instruction and guiding in the Lake District, Snowdonia and the Scottish Highlands
Thank-you for your interest in Lakeland Ascents.
Based in the beautiful English Lake District 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. We also offer a range of Adventure Days via our sister company lakedistrictactivities.co.uk
Lakeland Ascents is owned by Si Withington, an Instructor, Technical Rescue Specialist and Swift Water Rescue Technician based in the South Lakes. Si has over 15 years of experience of climbing, mountaineering, skiing and trekking all over the world. His adventures have taken him from the fells of the Lake District, to the Highlands of Scotland, the mountains of Snowdonia and further afield to the ranges of the Himalayas, the High Atlas, Alps and the Tatras.
Si is also a member of Kendal’s Mountain Search and Rescue Team, whose rigorous training programme complements his formal mountain training and experience.
Experienced instructors will deliver all of the activities and training that Lakeland Ascents offer. Usually, Si himself will deliver your activity or course, but where this is not possible, we work closely with a number of high-quality associate instructors, who we guarantee will ensure that you have a memorable experience.
We look forward to working with you and tailoring your mountain experience to your needs, wishes and ambitions.
