Jacopo Larcher, Caro Ciavaldini, James Pearson and Stefano Ghisolfi will attend KMM events in 2024.
WHAT IS THE KENDAL MOUNTAIN MASTERS TOUR?
From January 2024, five spectacular new comps will take place throughout the UK, (exclusively at TCH and Yonder walls). The events are designed to test lifelong climbers but thrill newcomers too. Because the Hangar, Yonder, Kendal Mountain Events and The North Face have a shared mission to inspire as many people as possible to enjoy the sport of climbing, and lower the barriers of access.
Our simple, open comp format will include paraclimbing, and gender inclusive categories. And in addition to the prizes available for winning a category, Ellis Brigham and The North Face will give away a variety of amazing spot prizes, so anybody who purchases a ticket could walk away with something cool.
It's also a chance to rub shoulders with huge names from the world of elite climbing, as each comp will play host to pro athletes and filmmakers who'll get involved with Q&A's, on the wall bouldering demos and more.
CLIMBING ICONS JOIN THE PARTY
The Kendal Mountain Masters tour features an extraordinary lineup of The North Face athletes. They aren't competing, but they'll be on deck to inspire and share some all-important psyche.
