The Arcteryx Climb Academy Lake District

The Arc’teryx Climb Academy Lake District returns May 25 – 27, 2024.

Set in the stunning Langdale Valley — in the heart of the Lake District National Park — this boutique-styled Academy immerses you in UK climbing culture.

The perfect place to learn and advance your climbing skills, it brings together world-class athletes, top-certified guides, and brand partners to deliver a wide range of clinics, workshops, and a supportive experience for all levels — no matter if you’re new to climbing or pushing your limits.

At the end of the day, grab a beer, share a story, watch inspiring films, and listen to live music. This is your community: Time to connect, learn, and transform your mountain skills.
