Patagonia grew out of a small company that originally made tools for climbers. Today alpinism remains at the heart of a business that still makes clothes for climbing as well as for skiing, snowboarding, surfing, fly fishing, paddling and trail running. These are all silent sports. None require a motor but in each sport, reward comes in the form of hard-won grace and moments of connection between us and nature.
The National Trust have been protecting the UK’s heritage and open spaces for over a hundred years. Their remit includes many key climbing areas and the Climbing Centre Group work in conjunction with the trust in providing climbing activities in several of these areas, including Brimham Rocks.
