Dear UKC followers,

A friend and climbing partner of mine died suddenly of cancer recently. On 27/7/14 I will do a sponsored climb in aid of CAC on the island of Ynys Lochtyn. I hope to raise pledges for the number of climbs I do, or for the day or even pledges if I get cut-off by the tide and spend the night there. As you probably don't know me personally, please go direct to CAC website and donate. You can follow me on twitter @LockedInMadness or email me for more details.

Pete

Polite request, can you explain what CAC is [and maybe not put unknown acronyms in requesting posts]?

I thought it was now a well known climbing term! :)

I've just ordered a T-shirt as a direct result of your thread.

Good luck with the climbing, and if you get cut off by the tide I'll make a donation. Let us know how you get on.

Excellent, thanks for your support and encouragement August! I'll keep this thread updated with news, as well as on the twitter feed @LockedInMadness

Three more pledges for donations if I get cut-off and have to spend the night on the island... looking more likely!

Using social media for good? I don't quite get twitter as I've picked a mostly random group of followers to @lockedin.madness
They don't know me and don't appear to have read what my twitter account is about!

Thanks to work colleague Kristian for donating direct to CAC today, and to Dave for pledging 1 per route (or 2 if he did the FA!).

Sorry to hear about the loss of your friend.

Have you contacted John Ellison, founder of CAC.

Thanks for supporting CAC - I am a trustee.

Thanks for your condolences. I've contacted John and have got some great pledges for the climb so far! Pete

Cash pledges worth 310 so far and pledges worth a minimum 2.50 per route. Last chance to pledge in aid of CAC before the climb tomorrow! Pete

Thnaks to everyone who pledged, donated direct, or bought one of CAC's excellent t-shirts for Locked-In Madness! It was a great day on Ynys Lochtyn, Mid-Wales' premier crag (dare I say as good as Pembroke?). I'm home now enjoying a glass of wine, and will tot-up the pledges tomorrow! I climbed 26 routes today, all solo unless otherwise stated:

Hi August,
I didn't get cut-off by the tide unfortunately for CAC, but am a little pleased for myself as a thunder storm has rolled into the Mid-Wales coast and I'm at home with a bottle of wine supplied by my boss as a reward!

The grand total raised is 444, and a big thanks goes out to everyone who've shown their support of CAC!

Good effort.

I was just thinking of this thread today and wondering how you got on.

Despite not getting cut off by the tide I will make a donation to CAC for you.
