Mammut Climbing Challenge - raffle winner, week 1

The lucky winner of a 60m single rated Mammut rope is Mark Alkin
(Mark, you can collect your rope from Reception next time you're down climbing)

There are still 3 ropes up for grabs in weekly raffles, all you need to do to enter is collect a free score sheet from reception and remember to hand it in each day after you have finished climbing.

This is an informal comp run over 4 weeks, so you can take your time trying to complete the twelve routes over multiple climbing sessions. Just remember it is a ground up competition, so if you fall off (or rest) you must lower to the ground before starting another attempt.

As well as the raffle prizes, there are also ropes up for grabs to the top scoring climbers in each category.
