James McHaffie will need no introduction to the climbers amongst you. His ascent of the Big Bang F9a last year placed him in an elite group of British climbers. The climbing community awaits with bated breath to see how Caff's famous trad ability combined with 9a sport fitness will transfer to the mountain crags that we know he loves.

As a friend of the Epicentre and member of our climbing team, it's always great to see Caff in Ambleside and hear about his latest adventures. We'll always do our best to get him fired up for another Lakes project. Last year Caff and Woody made short work a great looking new route; Abrahams' Covenant on Dow Crag and Caff also made a flying visit to climb Dawes Rides a Shovel Head for the cameras (see video below).

You can now have your very own climbing adventure with Caff. Spending a day on the crags with Caff is a great opportunity for climbers of all abilities to feed off his passion and enthusiasm for climbing and the mountains, you might even learn a few things along the way.

So The Epicentre have teamed up with Caff & to give two climbers the opportunity to win a day out with him in either the Lakes or North Wales.
