The Lakeland Revival and a Dirty Old Route

The Arc’teryx Lakeland Revival has just finished its second year, running from June until August.

The aim of the Lakeland Revival is to restore some of the traditional climbs that are being lost to foliage and dirt.

The revival began in June and ran until the end of August. The Lake District has a rich heritage, being one of the birthplaces of UK rock climbing. 

In this video we follow revival participant Rob Greenwood as he climbs one of the more ‘unique’ routes from the list (we promise not all of them are this wet and slimy).

Sergeant Crag Gully was originally climbed by O. G. Jones and J. W. Robinson in 1893, so it really is a very old classic.
