Upcoming trips and events.

22 Aug 2014 - 25 Aug 2014

For the Bank Holiday weekend, 22nd – 25th of August, we’re heading off to the South West Lake District. This area has some of the best big mountain crags this side of Scotland, plus spectacular walking and scrambling options. People who own more beanies than shirts might also be interested in the top-class bouldering at St Bees and in Eskdale.

We’ll be staying in the Parkgate Farm Campsite in Irton. This gives us easy access to both Wasdale and Eskdale. It’s fairly basic, but allows open fires (wood can be bought on site) and, according to their website, has the largest herd of donkeys in the area!
