Stephen Reid will be well-known to many Lakes enthusiasts as the proprietor of Needle Sports in Keswick. Together with friends he realised that the south-west of Scotland had more climbing opportunities than had previously been realised and some routes such as the Colonel’s Corner on Dungeon Hill have become classics. He also developed many of the surprisingly good winter routes in the region. Stephen will describe the development of this much overlooked area.
