ARC’TERYX LAKELAND REVIVAL & BIG MOUNTAIN WEEKEND
Arc’teryx is proud to announce the Lakeland Revival will be taking place for the fourth year running. Set in the beautiful Lake District National Park, the revival will begin on the 29th April and run until the end of August, giving you four long summer months to get out on the crags.
The Lake District has a rich heritage, being one of the birthplaces of British rock climbing after Haskett Smith soloed Napes Needle in the late 1800s. Trad climbing is a core part of the UK climbing community and the Lakeland Revival aims to encourage and inspire climbers to explore the Lake District.
The Lakeland Revival has been growing and developing over the past three years but the aim is still simple, to revive the spirit of Lakeland climbing. This year the focus is not on cleaning dirty routes but reviving Lake District climbing as a whole – the routes, the history, the stories, the characters and the myths and legends from the Lakeland valleys. Want get involved? Take a look here.
The Lakeland Revival will begin with the ‘Big Mountain Weekend’ taking place on the 29th & 30th April at the Sticklebarn, Langdale. This will include workshops run by the International School of Mountaineering and British Mountain Guides, for those of you who how want to refresh your trad skills before the summer and even those who have never trad climbed before. All are welcome. CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFO.
