The Challenge has been running since September and has so far produced four worthy winners. The shortlist is chosen by a panel of experts from Berghaus and Climb Magazine and then readers have the opportunity to choose the winner online.
Last month UKC Reader Pete Rhodes won £2000 of support for his trip planned for February to climb the Troll Wall in winter. Previous winners include another UKC Reader Guy Wilson and his plan to climb Mount Hayes (4216m) in Alaska in May 2011.
There is just one more month left to win £1000 in cash, and £1000 worth of Berghaus gear. So if you have an adventure that is a bit out of the ordinary then submit your application here. Remember it is adventure that counts!
