Keen to get out in the mountains this spring and benefit from some expert instruction for improving your scrambling or climbing skills?

That’s exactly what’s up for grabs in our special competition to join Salewa on their inaugural Alpine Campus, based at YHA Honister Hause, high above Borrowdale and Buttermere. Beautifully located and with a cosy, informal feel, YHA Honister Hause (below) offers a true mountain country; steep fells and valleys create a beautiful and distinctive landscape.

YHA Honister Hause

The Salewa Alpine Campus is all about mountain adventure; an opportunity to experience walking, scrambling, climbing and mountaineering in a remote setting. With two nights based at Honister Hause, you’ll arrive to find a warm welcome from the warden and meet the Salewa crew. You can then look forward to two days of adventure, under the guidance of professional mountain instructors, where you can take full advantage of the location and test Salewa and Wild Country equipment. You’ll be able to choose your activity level, with a 1:2 instructor to client ratio.

Dates are Friday 13th to Sunday 15th May 2022. You’ll be provided with a Salewa outfit, plus Wild Country gear and a Rockfax digital guidebook subscription for one month.
