Mountaineers join Lake District climbing summit
Bookmark and Share
A summit on climbing and mountains to be held in the Lake District will feature Chris Bonington and Doug Scott, it has been revealed.

Run by the Mountain Heritage Trust, the summit will take place at the Lakes School in Windermere on February 20th.

It will examine the psychology and attractions of adventure as the mountaineers join other well-known explorers in studying the lifestyles of those who make such activities a central feature of their lives.

Those keen on emulating famous climbers by acquiring a climbing rope and climbing shoes may be keen to attend the event and tap into the psyche of such people.

According to Alan Hinkes - the first Briton to climb all 14 of the world's mountains over 8,000 metres - the Lake District is the best place in the world to go climbing.

He went on to state that Scotland is the best venue for winter climbs.
