Event Date: 04 May 2019 - 05 May 2019 Location: Keswick, Lake District
For the sixth year running the Arc’teryx Lakeland Revival will take place in the historic Lake District National Park, the birth place of British trad climbing. From the 4th of May to the 31st of August, participants will be invited to climb the suggested routes put together by Fell & Rock Climbing Club.
To get involved participants must collect a route card from one of the designated retailers (Needle Sports, George Fisher or the Sticklebarn) and climb one of the suggested routes, whilst ensuring they snap some evidence of the crag or take a selfie photo. Once completed, they can then return to a retailer and exchange the route card for an Arc’teryx T-shirt or beanie.
The Big Mountain Weekend will be taking place 3rd May – 5th May at the Sticklebarn in Langdale for the launch of the Arc’teryx Lakeland Revival. The event aims to educate, share and improve skills that are necessary for enjoying the mountains and crags safely via a series of clinics.
The core climbing clinics run by the International School of Mountaineering will be on offer alongside some new ones. These include;
• DMM Women’s Introduction to Trad
• Nikwax Navigation
• Wild Swimming
• Tenaya Getting To Know Traditional Climbing
• Trail Running Development
After the success of the The Langdale Climbing Challenge last year it will be running again over this weekend only. Participants are invited to choose anything from our suggested hand-picked Langdale route card; a single climb or a full day mountain link up. Everyone that takes part will receive a free limited edition Lakeland Revival DMM carabiner.
Other things free and on offer over the weekend: BBQ for all clinic participants, live music, BMC Adventure film night, photo competition, demo gear and expert advice from Arc’teryx, DMM, Tenaya, Beta Climbing and Nikwax.

Esther is an MIA and will be teaching both BMC and Mountain Training climbing courses, starting and finishing here at Fishers. Esther is a George Fisher Ambassador for 2019 and we're very excited to bring you this great new opportunity to climb here in the Lake District.
Derek came in to see if we wanted to have some of his old climbing gear, we said 'yes'! We are so glad we did, his stories, the kit and his adventures have inspired us. We want to share this all with you to honour Derek and his love of climbing here in the Lakes!
Our staff get to review some of the latest kit to hit the shelves. They test products here in the Lake District so all reviews are appropriate to our climate and conditions.
