After the successful launch of Climb Lake District in 2021, the Arc'teryx Academy is excited to announce that the event will return to Langdale, Cumbria, from 29 April to 1 May.
The three-day event aims to give participants the skills required to take their climbing (and all-round adventuring) to the next level.
Basecamp will once again be located at the National Trust's Sticklebarn pub, in the Langdale Valley. From there, experts from the International School of Mountaineering (ISM) will lead a series of clinics and workshops around the valley's crags, boulders, and hills.
Participants of every ability will develop and advance their climbing skills with clinics on traditional climbing, scrambling, bouldering, mountain safety and rescue skills. There are also women-only sessions.
Off the rocks, a team of experts will lead a wild camping trip in the hills around Langdale, while Gilly McArthur will be coaxing people into the water for a session on the benefits of cold water and how to remain safe in it.
The Cumbria Wildlife Trust will also return this year with an environmental clinic offering participants the opportunity to learn about the importance of Cumbria's peatlands and taking part in important conservation work.
Back at The Sticklebarn, Arc'teryx Academy: Climb Lake District partners will be demoing technical gear across the weekend, inviting participants to try out the kit.
It all kicks off with a movie night at The Epicentre, in nearby Ambleside. (Keep an eye on the website for details in April.)
