With less than 10 nuts still to place we have updated the list to show which ones folks have found BUT we know there are more that have been claimed!

We have been having so much fun bumping into folks out at the crag and watching from afar as happy climbers have found a unique piece of our FREE 60th anniversary swag. If you found one then hurry! The grand prize draw at end of September is getting closer and if you want the chance to win this amazing Heaton-Cooper Print signed by Lakeland climbing legends then upload your photo now! Not a member of UKC? Not a problem simply e-mail helen@climbers-shop.com with your image and we can upload it for you.

In the meantime, take a look at the clues below for the nuts that are still out there waiting to be found or head over to our Facebook page for the latest clues and updates while making the most of the summer Lake District rock. The full list is available on the UKC competition page but for all of the latest info why not pop into our Ambleside shop and have a chat to the team.

Happy climbing!
