"The real adventure of climbing is accessing the beautiful and wild spaces that we have here in the UK. It's the fresh air, open sky, weather and views. It's the stronger relationships built through those outdoor experiences, adventures and climbing on real rock where the joy lies.

The Arc'teryx Climbing Academy in the Lake District is an opportunity to try climbing outdoors for the first time or develop your existing climbing skills and gain confidence, so that over time you can build your independence in order to 'go it alone'!" - Adrian Nelhams, ISM Director & IFMGA British Mountain Guide

I'm sure this will be a great event, but "BOUTIQUE-STLYE ACADEMY" for f**k's sake!?

Thanks for being braver than me in posting .

Presumably the dislike was for mis spelling style or muted swearing.

Boutique used to mean small independant shop selling good quality products. Nowadays I just want to puke when I see it.

I spent much of my climbing apprenticeship in Langdale, over 50 years ago. Nevertheless I love the modern climbing scene including its competitions, training, and most of all, its inclusivity. But applying the vernacular of the urban poseur to one of trad climbing's holiest places is just asking to be ridiculed!

Langdale is busy enough on a bh weekend without events like this adding to the load.

I will likely avoid the valley and look elsewhere to indulge in some "boutique sending".

One of those occasions where you think "you couldn't make it up". Yet someone did.

I also find it slightly disturbing that "UK climbing culture" is now about athletes, clinics, brand partners and workshops. Boutique workshops perhaps.
