It's coming up to that time of year again – Kendal Mountain Festival is looming on the horizon. Come the 20th of November and hundreds of people will converge on the quiet wool town in south Cumbria and see films, hang out, and.. well, what will they do?
"Are these festivals just a great excuse for an almighty piss-up?"
"On a different level, perhaps this social need can be catered for by internet climbing forums, explaining the popularity of the UKC forum pages?"
"But do we like talking about climbing more than we actually like climbing itself?"
