Experience the grandeur of the Lakes and see for yourself why climbing for fun was born here!*
Everything is on an epic scale in the Lakes – there are huge multi-pitch routes, but also plenty of easy stuff to cut your teeth on; there are also some spectacular hikes and of course stunning scenery in every direction you look 🙂 The best bit is that we will be here for 3 days over the bank holiday weekend!
We will be staying at Causeway Foot Farm Camping Barn which is a small, family run sheep and dairy farm set in the magnificent scenery of the Naddle Valley, just outside Keswick. The barn sleeps 16, and provides mattresses and pillows, but you will need to bring your own sleeping bag. The kitchen is apparently well stocked so you don’t need to bring your own cutlery/plates/mugs etc.
This meet will cost you a mere £20 per person for three night’s accommodation, breakfast each day and dinner on the Saturday night. Please indicate whether you are vegetarian or have other dietary needs when you book. Bring adequate food for lunch each day.
To sign up, use the booking form below as always. Numbers are limited in the barn, but camping may also be available onsite – more information will be added soon.
This meet is open to beginners and more seasoned climbers alike; if you have never climbed outdoors do not fear! You can second routes with more experienced climbers.
