Montane announce support of international expedition leader, alpinist, and mountaineer Becky Coles.
The Climbers Shop, Stony Stratford, Milton Keynes
3rd & 4th March 2018
No matter what part of the world you are planning to travel to, make sure you pop along to the Climbers Shop in Stony Stratford Milton Keynes on the first Saturday and Sunday of March for information, deals and fun as we celebrate all things expedition. There will be challenges, giveaways, free workshops on how to plan your own expedition lead by British Mountain Guide Technical Director Adrian Nelhams AND a huge prize draw where you could win expedition kit worth over £1500!!
We will have a fantastic team of expedition climbers and technical equipment experts who, along with our resident staff team of intrepid adventure travellers will be on hand both days to share stories, talk equipment and make sure you get the very best in product advice and fitting so that you can enjoy your trip to the max.
Come along and meet representatives from the UK's leading expedition equipment brands, Rab and Mountain Equipment, whose heritage, specialist knowledge of garment design and fabric expertise may help make the difference between buying an item for just one trip or buying a couple which will become firm favourites in your outdoor armoury whenever you head outdoors.
Make sure you book your ticket for Saturday evening too, when we will head to The Crown Inn for a unique opportunity to meet Rab Carrington; founder of Rab clothing and Patron of the British Mountaineering Council. Rab has climbed extensively on expeditions all over the world and there will be opportunities to chat with him informally throughout the evening after a short talk. Yet more inspiration will be on tap from British Mountain Guide and owner of the International School of Mountaineering; Adrian Nelhams. Adrian has over twenty years' experience of climbing new routes in Kyrgyzstan and will be sharing pictures and stories of travelling in this stunning region. Booking will be essential for the evening as places are limited to just 40 tickets at £5 each. Be sure not to miss this fantastic evening which includes a buffet and best of all – every penny raised from ticket sales will be donated to Doug Scott's charity Community Action Nepal.
We hope to see you there!
