This week's Friday Night Video is a celebration of Arc'teryx's Lakeland Revival initiative.

With a lot of routes in the Lakes not getting climbed enough, Arc'teryx wanted to remind people that the climbing here is still some of the best in the UK. With the help of local shops, Needle Sports and The Climbers Shop, Arc'teryx put together a list of 50 classic routes that need reviving.

With stunning camera work from Nick Brown, as well as entertaining footage of Ryan Pasquil and Katy Whittaker getting in and amongst the cleaning themselves, it will hopefully encourage you to get off the beaten track a bit this weekend.

What!? The FRCC guides have long been ahead of the game, you have to go back to the 1960s to find hard to use guides from that stable. If a guide has been out of print it has been only for a year or so though I'm...

There is a reason for the lack of climbing in the Lakes and that is that for a long time the guidebooks have either been out of print, hard to get hold of or just plain difficult to use. Note that the most popular...

I'm not sure if you are trying to parody someone - yourself maybe - or are serious? If the latter, ownership of what do you think is being grabbed for? I can see that the commercial sponsorship of climbing films can be...
