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. We will be conducting video interviews with key speakers and athletes over the weekend for release on social media, so keep your eyes peeled.

The big news is that this year we have a brand new guidebook hot off the press - Lake District Climbs. This wonderful celebration of trad climbing in the Lake District covers all the best routes on the mountain crags from Scafell East Buttress to Shepherd's Crag in Borrowdale.

We will have plenty of copies available (at a decent 25% off the RRP) plus all the other books in the range at a similar level of discount. You can also get a demo of the Rockfax app and chat to members of the team.

Come and see us in the far left corner of the Basecamp Marquee.
