UKC, UKH and Rockfax at Kendal


The Rockfax and UKC/UKH team will be at the Kendal Mountain Festival for all four days from the opening on Thursday 15 through to Sunday 18. We have a stand in the Basecamp Village where you will be able to meet the team, try out the Rockfax app and grab a bargain guidebook or a T-shirt.

This year our stand is in the far back left corner of the tent. Those present on the UKC/UKH/Rockfax stand at various times will be: Alan James, Rob Greenwood, Nick Brown, Dan Bailey, Stephen Horne, Paul Phillips, Martin McKenna and Natalie Berry.

If you have any questions that you wish to ask then visit the stand and we will either arrange a meeting or pass your question on.

Film Premiere - Statement of Youth

The most exciting thing we have going on this year is the premiere of our new film Statemnet of Youth. Directed by UKC Editor Nick Brown, it describes the exploits of a small group of climbers in the 1980's who would do anything to climb full-time: sleeping in sheds underneath crags, shoplifting for food and clothes, and living off the dole. These climbers were living outside the rest of society and went on to become the most influential figures in the history of British climbing.

The premiere is at 16:30 on Friday - get your tickets here
