Saturday 21st Nov 10.00 - 12.00 Lakeland Climbing Centre

Workshop by British Mountain Guides

Workshops by British Mountain Guides - supported by Arc'teryx. Learn from the professionals about three different kinds of climbing technique.

Free workshops run by professionals

Glacier rope work: Learn how to rope up for glacial travel and prusik out of a crevasse with top rock and alpine experts Stuart McAleese and Twid Turner.

Dry tooling: The Lakeland Climbing Centre has developed a fantastic dry tooling facility. This is your chance to 'have a go' or develop those existing mixed climbing techniques under the  watchful eye of Lakes based ice expert Adrian Nelhams.

The Big Wall Portaledge Experience: Kendal’s resident wall monster Andy Owen is just back from Yosemite and will get you to jug lines and set up a portaledge on the Lakeland Climbing Centre’s big wall – steeper than many bits of El Cap and with cleaner toilets. You know it makes sense.

All these workshops are FREE courtesy of the BMG's partner Arc'teryx but numbers are strictly limited. Contact the Lakeland Climbing Centre on  +44 (1539) 721766  to reserve your place now! There are limited places so book early to avoid disappointment.

Supported by  Arc’teryx and the Lakeland Climbing Centre
