Yep, I'm off to the Dales with some teenagers, and I'm looking for a decent gorge scramble or canyoning route to get them interested (if I use the "walk" word we're doooomed). I know the lakes is nearby, but there must be a decent route in the Dales. We are likely to be on the West side near Settle/Ingleton, though a drive for a good route is always possible.
Not wanting to be too descriptive, but a few big jumps would be nice!
If you don't want to advertise your secret route on the very public web then please PM me.
What about Ease Gill? This has a few interesting bits if you do the full length from the caving hut upwards and includes a short pitch, traversing above pools and a 'cave' behind a waterfall that'll you'll benefit from the use of headtorches to see where you're going.
