Climbing4all: the challenging charity fundraiser.

Do you think you could climb the height equivalent of the tallest peaks in the UK with your friends? Or maybe even Everest?

The BMC (British Mountaineering Council) is running a fundraising campaign from the 17-23 March 2018 to help 11 UK based charities that work through the medium of climbing and the outdoors. Teams from schools, universities, climbing clubs and individuals can sign up to raise money for one of the charities through one of the BMC’s climbing challenges suggested below or make up their own.

Decide on your challenge then try and climb the distance either on your own or with your team at Beacon! To help you calculate how much climbing you’ll need to do to complete your chosen challenge, our bouldering wall is 4.5m high, the main lead wall is 17m high, the speed wall area is 15m high and our top roping area is 10m high. Good luck!
