Staff from all four of the Joe Brown Shops and The Climbers Shops came together in Langdale this week to enjoy a training day with Arc’Teryx sponsored athlete Katie Whittaker and British Mountain Guide Adrian Nelhams.

The vagaries of the Lakeland April weather meant there was ample opportunity to look at layering appropriate clothing throughout the day alongside the more technical aspects of good rope work and belay practice, the merits of single and double rope techniques in trad climbing as well as taking coils while moving together on steep terrain. The whole team had a great time with everyone ascending the three star Raven Crag classic Middlefell Buttress at least once before heading down to the iconic Old Dungeon Ghyll pub for essential tea and cake.

Many thanks to Jim …….. and Katie Whittaker for organising the day as part of the Big Mountain Weekend event running out of Sticklebarn in Langdale this coming weekend in conjunction with the International School of Mountaineering.
