Laura and Yelmer Visit

Here are some pictures of when Laura, Johan's cousin, and her boyfriend Yelmer, came to do activities with RDMH on the week of the 16th August. Their multi-activity week included Mountain Biking, Gorge Walking and Abseiling, as well as some fun jumping in the river one evening.

A quick hot chocolate break during biking along the East side on Coniston Water, with beautiful views (despite the grey clouds!)
Gorge Walking at Rydal Beck (another hot chocolate break!) but very much needed with all that cold water - you can see the amazing rock slide behind Laura on this picture!

Great that the sun is shining to speed up the drying process!

Some great pictures of the Abseiling too - very brave!!

And they even had the energy to jump into some pools one evening with Johan and Tim!!
Johan had a great time with Laura and Yelmer! From all at River Deep - We hope to see you both again soon!

Abseiling Adenture Day 27th July 2010

A Really Fun Day Out Scrambling and then Abseiling in Coniston

Martin and sons, James and Thomas, thoroughly enjoyed our Abseiling Adventure Day this summer with Johan.

Martin said "Johan thanks for the abseiling adventure day. It was great to start with the views of Coniston from the climbing and then to finish with the 40 metre abseil.
We even learnt how useful a prusik can be! May come in handy one day."

Going through the tunnels at Cathedral Quarry to reveal the Abseil!

Abseiling at Cathedral Quarry - a big finale!
