You are staying in a mountain hut . You receive a message from the local mountain rescue team saying that they require your assistance in locating a fallen climber. There are some clues to their whereabouts but everything is vague and extremely puzzling.
A handwritten note left on a car… A huge search area.
The team need your help but time is of the essence. A severe weather warning has been given for an hours time.
Wind speeds of up to 100mph, lashing rain and zero visibility are forecast. If the casualty is to survive, you have to locate him and inform the mountain rescue team of his location before the rescue helicopter can land. Time is critical, can you work as a team and save the stricken climber before it is too late? The climber’s life is in your hands.

Roory experienced says:

Good theming/atmosphere (although not necessarily theming of the puzzles themselves) & lots of puzzle content to keep a team busy.

Had a loss of direction on a couple of occasions, especially at the beginning with working out how to proceed. Has made me appreciate other rooms where it's clear where a code goes when acquired, and also that sequence puzzles in an ideal order (frustrating to think you have unlocked a puzzle, but it eventually turns out you didn't have everything you needed to solve at the time). Still don't enjoy mathematics in any form in rooms (even with a provided calculator!).

Overall an enjoyable experience, surprisingly so given its location which seemed to cater to a younger audience (adjacent to soft-play area, climbing wall etc.). Very happy they offer a price for only 2 people, which seemed very reasonable. Go and visit if in Keswick, make sure to select the 'experienced' setting when booking.

Possibly the best escape room I’ve done, due to immersion, pacing and variety of puzzles. If you’re not a hill walking fan, it’s still worth coming to Keswick for this escape room!
