Arc'teryx Academy - Climb Lake District - 25 & 26 September 2021

The event has gathered momentum over the years, and grown to where this year we'll be offering an even bigger range of clinics where we aspire to instruct, coach and develop participants skills and experience to both enjoy and over time become more independent in the beautiful UK mountains.

The clinics will range from giving outdoor climbing a try for the very first time, to gaining more experience multi-pitch rock climbing, some coaching in trad lead climbing, to scrambling skills, bouldering, wild swimming and developing your trail and mountain running skills.

Testimonials For ISM

Please pass on my very, very sincere thanks to Thomas, Daniel & Christian. They are truly quality people! Patient, understanding, professional, and wonderful ambassadors for your company. I have experienced many guides over my 50 years in climbing and they rank right up there with the very best.

Mont Blanc Ascent

“What an incredible week learning the basics of Mountaineering. The course is perfectly balanced between summiting high alpine peaks and learning rope, climbing and glacier skills.

William 2021

The course was excellent, lots of variety and provided me with a good range of skills. Loved reaching the summit of the Weissmeis, for such a nervous and unconfident novice like me, I gained a real sense of achievement from the ascent and the whole week. Huge thanks to Pat.
