Unleash your adventurous side…
Join us for an evening of film and talks celebrating adventure from some of the most spectacular places on earth, brought to you by the team behind Kendal Mountain Festival. You’ll be guided through a curation of stories from across the globe, told by a unique collection of travellers, athletes, activists and creatives. Through culturally rich, cinematically beautiful and thought provoking films we’ll ask; what is possible in a changing world, what is beautiful, what is wild and what defines adventure?
Alongside the collection of adventure films, will be a talk from adventurer Anna Taylor. Anna is the first woman to complete a self-powered round of every route that features in ‘Classic Rock’, the iconic guidebook written by Ken Wilson. The 23-year-old from the Lake District cycled 2,400 km and climbed over 10,000 m during a journey that lasted 62 days and saw her solo most of the 83 routes. In 2020, Anna became the first woman to climb the 2,000ft (610m) sheer rock face of Mount Roraima, in Guyana, South America as part of an epic expedition led by Leo Houlding.
We’ll also be inviting Blue Mind Men to the stage, a peer supported swim club promoting better mental health through cold water swimming. Founded in January 2022, the club meets every Sunday morning at Windermere for dips, chats and cake. It is an inclusive club for men of all ages and swimming abilities – all are welcome!
The evening will be hosted by Kendal Mountain Director Steve Scott, with thanks to Presenting Partner Cotswold Outdoor.
What’s in store for you at the Kendal Mountain Tour 2022
The Process – Director – Matt Pycroft – ColdHouse Collective – UK, 15 minute film
Tom Randall is a world class crack climber. He is also a terrible runner, which is why his latest challenge seems like an odd choice. He decided to link up two of the Lake District’s biggest and toughest endurance challenges, the Bob Graham Round and The Classic Rock challenge into one hellish 24 hour mad dash. A funny, honest, genuine and heartfelt story.
Girls Gotta Eat Dirt – Director – Elliot Wilkinson-Ray – USA – 6 minute film
The story of three best friends and riding partners. A mix of lighthearted fun moments with high alpine MTB action.
ASCEND – Reframing Disability in the Outdoors – Director – Faith E. Briggs – USA – 12 minute film
Vasu is not seeking to inspire you to feel good. His trauma doesn’t exist solely to benefit the education of others. He is seeking to inspire you to move mountains. To take action. Skiing is the method, but the real mountains are the ‘isms’ that fail to support Disabled communities, communities of colour and so many others for whom access has not been a right.
Talk by: Anna Taylor – 45 minute talk – A Climber with some impressive routes to her name!

The 23-year-old Berghaus Ambassador from the Lake District cycled 2,400km and climber over 10,000m during a journey that lasted 62 days and saw her solo most of the 83 routes. In 2020 she joined an epic expedition led by Leo Houlding and climber the 2,000ft (610) sheer rock face of Mount Roraima, in Gyana, South America.
