Scouts Jump in to Adventure!
1st Consett Scouts enjoyed an amazing day jumping off waterfalls and sliding down rocks, during a day of Ghyll Scrambling.
The 12 intrepid scouts and 1 leader and 1 young leader (2 leaders decided to be on photographic duty) started off walking under a waterfall on Ashgill, before plunging in to the pool below. They then scrambled downstream to the first of the waterfall jumps.
With everyone successfully negotiating that jump it was onwards and downwards, with the waterfalls becoming ever bigger, and some you had to slide down backwards! The last jump was in to a seemingly bottomless chasm!
Congratulations to all the scouts who bravely took part, and to Marc who reluctantly wore the wetsuit for the leaders, but ended up wanting to do it again.
