Classic Rock Weekend
2 or 3 days
First published in 1978, Ken Wilson's classic rock book described 80 of the finest rock climbs in Britian and has gone on to be recognised as one of the most popular works of climbing literature ever written.
Within the book are 15 iconic Lake District climbs. From valley cragging to high mountain masterpieces on some of the most beautiful and famous crags in the Lake District.
Almost all of these climbs are in the lower to mid grades and gives an unparalleled experience to any climber who enjoys being on the rock and climbing on what are considered to be the finest examples of climbing in the Lakes.
Over two or three days we aim to climb as many as these classics as possible. Enjoying amazing scenery, superb routes and beautiful mountains.
Your guide will work closely with you prior to your weekend to establish an itinerary that works with your abilities, the weather and your previous experience. The days are long but the memories will last longer. We recommend climbers have some history of being on the crags before, but this is not essential.
This is the ultimate in Lake District guided climbing.
A must complete list for any climber! So what are you waiting for, come and enjoy it with us!
