In this, the third of a five part video series called 'Hand Picked' from Marmot, we see Leah Crane in action on her favourite boulders at the sandstone seaside venue of St Bees, West Cumbria.

Here Marmot introduce their series:

All too often we read stories and watch videos of the beautiful climbing that the rest of the world has to offer. All too often we are told about the latest mega-route, or another FA of a V15 boulder problem. There is absolutely no doubt that these ascents are impressive, but for the majority of us, they are way beyond the realms of possibility.

In this series of films presented by Marmot, five of Britain's best climbers: Leah Crane, Neil Mawson, Jack Geldard, Steve McClure and Lucy Creamer, all famous for pushing hard and bagging top ascents of their own, showcase some of their Hand Picked favourite places to climb on their home soil, with routes that climbers aspiring to push their grades into the E-numbers and V-numbers can enjoy.

The five films are released in the lead up to the once-in-a-lifetime lecture that Lucy Creamer, Britain's most accomplished female climber, will give at Kendal Mountain Festival on November 16th. 'Accident or Design' will be an intimate look at the woman beyond the climber, and will explore her motivations and inspirations, her drive and achievements, being in the media spotlight, dealing with potentially life changing surgery, and the many other highs and lows she has experienced along the way.

For more info on the lecture visit the Kendal Mountain Festival Website.

Please note, there will be a FREE BEER for every ticket holder of the lecture in the Marmot Tent. Yes, you did read that correctly.

I have been climbing for over twenty years ... I first 'touched rock' aged 3 and started to climb frequently from the age of 5. Dave Dicks was my first ever coach & I trained with him twice a week for around...

Really appreciate hearing Leah describing some nice problems in a stunning setting. Can't help but think the audio was poorly mixed? Was it just my connection?

hi. I'm hoping it was your connection! In what way is it bad? Thanks for the feedback

Audio sounded good to me. Was just thinking how enjoyable the voiceover was. Made me want to go!

cool, that was the plan! Mission accomplished! Haha

Great video. Really makes me want to go and have a crack at the 6,7 and fall off the 8. Esp as Leah's jointly set circuit at the Biscuit at the moment is superb.
