Winterfest 2019

Winterfest 2019 |
Winterfest is coming back to Outside!

Welcome in the winter, with Outside's Winterfest. We'll be running on the hill sessions and gear tests with Matt Helliker, plus special offers on Scarpa climbing footwear and Black Diamond gear.

On-The-Hill Advice & Gear Testing with Matt Helliker

Matt HellikerMatt Helliker is one of Britain's most accomplished alpinists, with a hardcore list of stylish new routes and repeats to his name stretching from the Alps to Alaska, Peru, Scotland and the Himalaya. Alongside his ability on the cold stuff, hard alpine northwall ED4s and Scottish IX onsights, Matt also excels on the rock. He redpoints F8b+, E7 onsights, and gets stuck into hard Dolomite big walls.

Come along and have a choice of Black Diamond kit to test on the crag (weather permitting*). You can test new cams, ropes, belay devices, bouldering mats, rock shoes; and Matt will be around giving tips on climbing and using the kit, and will hopefully climb with a few of the participants.

It will be a nice relaxed informal event, and attendees will also get free entry to the evening lecture. Sessions will run at 10:30 am and at 2:30 pm - book your place quickly to avoid disappointment!

Tickets are £6.50 pp and you can get them here.

*If we get rained off, we'll take the sessions indoors.

Please note: All climbing is done at own risk, climbers must have personal insurance (i.e BMC).
