/ New Specialist Climbing Shop Opens in Ambleside
Lakes Climber is a new independent climbing shop that is now open for business at 3-4 Cheapside, Ambleside.
Lakes Climber was inspired by a desire to offer a high level of specialist climbing knowledge, products, information and atmosphere.
We want to try and stay true to the following;
DMM, Patagonia, POD Sacs, Rab, Arcteryx, Montane, Hagloffs, Wild Country, Black Diamond, Moon, Grivel, Petzl-Charlet, 5.10, Scarpa, La Sportiva, E9, Boreal, Kayland, Mammut, Metolius, Prana
So thatís the plan, please call in and see us when youíre next about. We are having a grand opening on Saturday 24th March, with live music, food and drink and a climbing quiz with prizes.
http://www.lakesclimber.com is currently being built and will offer free shipping and a loyalty discount based on your yearly spend both online and in-store.
Finally, for the masochist amongst you who enjoy running, there is a specialist running shop upstairs Ė Lakes Runner.
It snowed today and the Mountains are finally back in full winter knick Ė Happy days indeed.

Hi. Me and Muz called in on you the weekend before last - I guess when you were just 'moving in'. Even in the middle of the chaos you found time to have a chat with us, fill us in on what was going on, which was nice.
Anyway - just wanted to wish you good luck with everything.
I will pop in for some running shoes when I'm up next as my middle age spread from being a fat cat retailer (I wish) is still spreading.
Do you do discount for being in Bognor Regis Basket Weaving society?
i'll certainly be popping in everytime i visit the lakes and will keep your new website as a favourite.
Good luck but im sure you won't need it.
Best of luck with the new venture matey. Go and get yourself a steak bake from over the road and have one for me.
It's a good job I didn't get a climbing guide to Singapore off you, last time I was back. It's shit. Thailand's not bad, though.
Hey Ian, long time no speak. Its Alex from the 'big smoke'. the very best of luck with the new shop. love the fact that you give 2 shits worth for the independent cause, advising and selling kit with a genuine love and knowledge of the product.
i ll come see ya when i get upto the lakes in april.
Simon came in the shop this last week and we had a good yarn.
take care of yo'self
Nice picture. The shop looks good. I am sure that this will be a blinding success with you three monkeys at the helm!
Ill pop in for a cup of tea (in the cafe?) and maybe even a brucey deal or two (!) as soon as woodwell dries out.
All the best
Thanks for the coffee this am. Shop looks great. I'm sure it will be a success.
Wishing you well
Geordie Visitors !!!
