On the weekend of the 14th of May UKC teamed up with
Plas y Brenin
in North Wales for The Big Climb - a series of workshops and mini-courses on a wide range of climbing topics.
The weekend was a great success, with skills, tips, coaching and instruction from big walling to bouldering. As well as the top-class instruction, great food and lovely accommodation, everyone on the course got a huge free goody bag stuffed with outdoor kit and Rockfax guidebooks.
Goody-Bag prizes were kindly provided by:
Joe Browns, Teko, Lorpen, Exped and Rockfax
The Big Climb was our second annual event at Plas y Brenin, following on from the Alpine Festival held in 2010.
