Express your love of the Lake District with this eye-catching design mapping the region’s mountains and lakes in a way you’ve never seen before.

Alfred Wainwright was famously a man of few words. But it’s probably reasonable to assume the 214 words we’ve artfully arranged on this new T-shirt were among his favourites.

We wanted to produce a T-shirt with an original design based around the Lake District that would appeal to hill walkers, climbers and casual fans alike. After much racking of brains we came up with the idea of ‘mapping’ the region using the names of its signature landmarks – the lakes and mountains.

In a homage to the famous guidebook author, we’ve taken the names of all 214 hills considered the core Wainwright mountains, plus 11 of the biggest lakes, and arranged them to produce an eye-catching, intricate word map of the Lake District.

Perfect for the Lake District-lover in your life, it’s guaranteed to spark conversations with other Lakeland-obsessives and make the wearer the envy of fellow walkers in the Wasdale Head Inn.

The T-shirts are now in stock and selling like hot cakes, so head to the BMC online shop now to get yours.

Printed on 100% organic ring-spun combined cotton round neck t-shirt. - available in men's and women's fit. A snip at £20 for non-members and £15 for members.

The most impressive traverse ever completed?

Belgian climber Sean Villanueva O'Driscoll has been willingly stuck in Patagonia since Covid-19 kicked off, and making the most of it: jaws dropped around the climbing world when he became the first to solo the Fitz Roy Traverse late last week. This epic route, fantasised about by anyone who has ever seen a photo of the jagged skyline above El Chalten, was first completed by the dream simul-climbing team of Alex Honnold and Tommy Caldwell in 2014. The route traverses the iconic Cerro Fitz Roy and its six satellite peaks: 5km of ridge line with around 4000m of vertical gain.
