Going to in the area for the summer, so hope to get out climbing, but this would be great to finish the summer with if I'm not working.

Hope it comes off. You could try contacting UKC for some promotion. Its a shame there isn't a climbing wall in the sports centre for wet days.

Sounds great - worth pointing out that the Harris Mountain Festival runs for the week following this too, so if folk are up visiting they could make a trip of it (contact North Harris Trust for info).

Best of luck getting to the total guys! I'm sure it would be a sweet event having had a taster of the sea cliffs, mountain crags and hospitality in the area!

Hi Guys. Good luck in getting this off the ground. There would be loads of us from Glasgow that would come to this! Lots of love from Rob and all at The Glasgow Climbing Centre!

I am a caver but come up every year from Somerset and would like to support your venture as it should help to boost the local economy. My daughter has done some climbing in the area, Rieff and Old Man of Stoer.
