    Ready to revive Lakes climbing? Make an ascent of one of the 50 classic routes that need reviving this August, and you’ll get a free Arc’teryx chalk bag or t-shirt – and probably have a great adventure too. The sublime Lakeland world of pikes, tarns and looming pillars is where it all started for British climbing when Coleridge sent (or descended) Broad Stand on Scafell in 1802. Hobnail-boot climbers through to lycra gymnasts have since developed rock from mountain top to roadside in the Lakes, leaving routes from every decade and predilection in their wake. The only problem is there are simply not enough climbers scooting up each Lakeland line to keep them in good nick. Grabbing the promise of a surreally perfect British summer with a prehistoric bird-like grip, Arc’teryx, with the help of local climbers shops Needle Sports and The Climbers Shop, have put together a list of 50 classic routes that need reviving, and are offering willing climbers a chalk bag or T-shirt in return for a tick. All you have to do is climb a route of any grade from VD to E4 from the Lakeland Revival list this August, get a picture to prove it, and drop it in with a route report to Needle Sports in Keswick or The Climbers Shop in Ambleside, picking up a present in return. So, drumroll please, the Lakeland Revival list is as follows: North Lakes Raven Crag, Thirlmere Empire E3 Communist Convert VS Totalitarian E1 Great End Crag, Borrowdale Nagasaki Grooves E4 No Holds Barred E2 Shepherd's Crag Vesper VS Quayfoot The Mound MVS Eagle Crag, Borrowdale The Great Stair MVS The Sprogg HVS The Squawk E2 Where Eagle's Dare E2 Falconer's Crack VS Post Mortem E3 High Crag, Buttermere High Crag Butress HVS Nebuchanezzar's Dream E1 Gethsemane E1 Delilah VS Eagle Crag, Buttermere Carnival E1 Deimos E3 Shape of things to come E2 A wing and a prayer E3 Pilar Rock Cunning Stunts E2 Puppet E2 Caucus Race E3 South Lakes Scrubby Crag Beowulf VS Grendel VS Hrothgar HVS Pavey Ark Deception S Rainmaker E1 Mother Courage E4 Cascade HVS East Raven Crag Brown Trousers HVS Frankie goes to Kendal E1 White Ghyll Inferno MVS Upper Scout Crag Ramblers Hangover VD Helm Crag The Grouter S Sky Glow VS Gimmer Carpetbagger VS Grondle Grooves HS Neckband Crag Close Shave E4 Tattered Banners E2 Flat Crag BB corner E1 Flat Crag Corner HVS Solaris E4 North Buttress The Gnomon E1 Deer Bield Crag Hubris E1 Side Pike Crustacean Traverse VD Dove Crag Westmorlands Route S Hangover HVS Extol E2 A reminder of what you have to do: - Choose an unclimbed route from the Lakeland Revival list - Climb it and get proof of the ascent - Return to Needle Sports or The Climbers Shop with a short route report - Pick up your free T-shirt or chalk bag (whilst stocks last) - Feel pleased as punch - Check Lakeland Revival to see the projects progress and route reports and look out for the Lakeland Revival film coming soon to BMC TV - Instagram your route with hashtag #lakelandrevival to try to win an Atom LT Jacket from Arc’teryx Send unfiltered pictures to Ron Kenyon at ron@jaggedlakes.plus.com to be in with a chance of making the new Lakes Selective Guide

    • Derwent Water

      Mum & I ventured to Keswick for another walk. We'd planned to get the short boat trip across Derwent Water and then start our walk from there. When we got there we were told that the waters were too low and that there were no boats! So we decided to walk around instead, turning our walk into a 9 and a half mile one! Crikey. It was a great walk. There was a big wooden sculpture of a hand, we only went wrong a few times (ahem), the rain surprisingly held off AND... right at the very end of the walk (when I had just packed my camera away, grumble grumble), we heard a big rustle and turned to see Mother and Baby Roe Deer! It was the first time I had seen wild deer and it was amazing. They are beautiful! Music: "North Sea" by Frame (http://www.framemusic.org)

        Mum & I adventured up to the Lake District last week to walk the 6.5 miles around Ennerdale Water. It was a beautiful sunny day and the views were great! We weren't expecting to do a bit of rock climbing though haha. All shot on my GoPro Hero 3+ Song: Stornoway- I Saw You Blink.

        • Cedric Robinson 2 Edited Tribute Cumbria


          from Chris Abram / Added

          Cedric Robinson MBE has completed fifty years as The Queen's Guide to the Kent Sands, the longest serving since records began in the 16thC. Cedric has escorted thousands of charity walkers across the treacherous sands of Morecambe Bay and in the process helped to raise over £2.5M. Last year,in honour of his fifty years as a guide, his eightieth birthday and his fifty three years of being married to his wife Olive, I organised a "Gala Tribute to Cedric Robinson MBE" in The Coronation Hall, Ulverston and this video is some of the material which I filmed for the event.. This video is being entered in a Cumbria film competition and the time limit is only twelve minutes, therefore I have had to leave out many of the tributes given by several personalities. For further related full length videos go to www.heritagevideoproductions.co.uk.

                    I set my white balance to cloudy and headed to the UK. Keswick is beautiful town in the Lake District, towards the north of England. This is where I used to spend my family holidays. I only had two days there and the weather was unforgiving, but this is how I remember it :) Special thanks to my father, Martin Rhodes, for enduring the cold while I took these shots. Shot with a Canon Rebel T3i - Lens (Sigma 18-250mm HSM Macro), using a Meike Intervalometer. Song: Constantin Rupf - Weimar, Berlin, Amsterdam Please like my Facebook page below for updates:- facebook.com/danielrhodesfolio Shot & post-produced by Daniel Rhodes.
