The Arc'teryx Big Mountain Weekend is back again in the beautiful Langdale Valley on the 8th - 10th May. Join us for clinics, aimed to educate and improve your mountain and crag skills and come and enjoy live music, BBQ and beer at the Sticklebarn event base camp. The Langdale Challenge will be available to take part in all weekend and our event partners will also be on hand to offer out the very best advice, demo gear and samples.
As always we have refined our clinics again this year to make sure we are providing you with top-notch information from the very best British Mountain Guides at the ISM. We are proud to present four new clinics including Overnight Wild Camping, Fine Tune Your Trad Climbing and two Environmental Clinics: Sphagnum moss planting and tree planting.
Give Something Back
Did you know Sphagnum moss absorbs more CO2 per sqm than the rainforest? It plays an important part in the fight against climate change by trapping carbon dioxide and retaining water.
This year we have partnered up with Cumbria Wildlife Trust to run two environmental clinics over the weekend, one will be to transplant peat-forming Sphagnum moss onto bare ground to help fight erosion. The other will be helping to plant native trees and learning about the benefits for wildlife, climate and flood mitigation.
You can find out more information on these HERE.
To celebrate the launch of the Arc'teryx Big Mountain Weekend, Arc'teryx will be giving away an Alpha FL 30 Backpack.
This ultralight, durable, highly weather resistant climbing pack is designed for fast and light alpine, ice and rock routes and is built for climbers. Working together, the highly durable, weather impermeable N400-AC² fabric, taped seams and RollTop™ closure combine to shut out the elements and protect the pack's contents. With no extraneous materials or aspects, the Alpha FL 30 sheds grams but does not sacrifice necessary features. An external bungee attachment secures tools, crampons, belay parka, helmet or sleeping pad. A simple strap at the top secures a rope, and the unique laminated shoulder strap construction delivers a comfortable carry without unnecessary weight. An external security pocket stores small essentials.
