Really good challenge for a very good cause. Glad that UKC have publicised it like this. Hopefully some of the national climbing mags can do the same.

The boys are doing well and are on course for their ferry - so come on guys....as somebody posted on Facebook: "If you've ever done a pullup on a pullup bar (the way that Hannah was injured) please donate". I reckon that a pound each from us all would amount to a hell of a difference to Hannahs life.

Please help us help Hannah.

Thank you
