Charity Calendar for Climbers Against Cancer

Please Register as a New User in order to reply to this topic.

The 2022 Rucksack Club Charity Calendar in support of Climbers Against Cancer is on the shelves now!

Thanks to the generosity of The Rucksack Club and some of its individual members, every penny of the purchase price will go to support Climbers Against Cancer in funding research around the world. That’s right – think of it as making a £10 charity donation and getting a free calendar!

Fifty photos taken from the equivalent month of the previous year feature members enjoying the whole gamut of Club activities: climbing, mountaineering, bouldering, fell-running; kayaking and paddle-boarding amongst other things. From the Matterhorn to the Old Man of Stoer; from E9 limestone to VDiff seacliff; and running the Joss Naylor Challenge to a snowy walk with the dog! There’s something for everybody!

Through the worldwide climbing community, CAC https://www.climbersagainstcancer.org/ aims to increase awareness and raise funds for research in the continued fight against a disease that affects so many. Climbers Against Cancer is a non-profit organisation, with all proceeds donated directly to cancer research facilities throughout the world. CAC is celebrating its tenth anniversary this year. Last year, with your support, the calendar raised over £3,000 for Urban Uprising https://www.thebmc.co.uk/rucksack-club-and-urban-uprising-team-up-for-2021-calendar – let’s see if we can go even further for CAC this time!

The calendar is available online directly from the CAC Shop https://www.climbersagainstcancer.org/shop/rucksack-club-cac-calendar/ and from Climb-Europe https://climb-europe.com/rockclimbingshop/rucksack-club-2022-calendar.html and will also be on sale at local climbing walls. A huge thank you to Climb-Europe, Awesome Walls and the Climbing Centres group for their support again this year. 

What's not to like!? Get one for the kitchen wall, and a spare for the study, and don’t forget a few for stocking-fillers! Thanks in advance for your generous support! 

Cheers, Dom

PS I thought that before I spotted the caption on the contents page - honest

PPS Great photo btw

In reply to petegunn:

Hi Pete. You're close(ish) - about 5 miles out I'd guess (right backdrop!) Chris C has got the right answer (see below). Why not treat yourself anyway - think of it as a free calendar whilst making a £10 donation to a great cause

In reply to Chris Craggs:

Haha - yes, I realised after I posted the "competition" that I'd given a bit of a clue! You are, of course, correct! PM me with a reminder of your address and I'll get one in the post (and it would be great, when you get it, if you'd give it a review and a plug via your huge social media presence )

Cheers, Dom 

In reply to dominic o:

The calendar is now on sale at Parthian Climbing Centres and Awesome Walls - only £10 or £5 for students / unwaged. Get down there and pick one up now

Cheers, Dom 

In reply to dominic o:

The calendar is now available at the Climbing Works!

To celebrate here's the photo from July. Adam Bowman pulling hard in a great photo by Marsha Balaeva, but can you spot the crag? The first person to post the correct answer gets a free calendar - extra kudos if you get the route!

Cheers, Dom 

In reply to dominic o:

but can you spot the crag? 

It's Raven Tor. I'm not too sharp on Tor routes but let's have a guess at Chimes (chimes of freedom). 🙂

In reply to deacondeacon:

Yup - nice one - it's The Torr. PM me with your postal address and I'll send you a calendar

No cigar for the route name though - I'll leave it until the end of the week before I post the answer, to see if anyone else can get it, and also post another month's featured pic for the chance to win another calendar

Cheers, Dom

Hubble?

In reply to Iamgregp:

Fraid not - quite a bit to the side and somewhat easier. I'll post the answer tomorrow alongside another photo for a chance to win a free calendar  

Cheers, Dom 

In reply to dominic o:

Okay - time's up. I'll put you out of your misery. It's Waddage (8b)

Now for another chance to win a free calendar - can you identify this crag from the April main shot? Extra kudos for naming the problem.

Of course, the easiest way to get hold of your copy is just to click on this link https://www.climbersagainstcancer.org/shop/rucksack-club-cac-calendar/ - think of it as a £10 donation to an excellent cause - Climbers Against Cancer - and you still get a free calendar!

Cheers, Dom

The crag is Crookrise and the climb is 'Fly'

In reply to Si Witcher:

Good effort Si - that didn't take long! PM me with your address and I'll get a copy in the post

Cheers, Dom

PS - watch out for another picture next week

PPS - can't wait until Friday? Go online and buy yours now: https://www.climbersagainstcancer.org/shop/rucksack-club-cac-calendar/

In reply to dominic o:

Hi Dom, don't worry bout sending one out. My wife is getting me one for Christmas 🙂

In reply to dominic o:

Hi Dom, don't worry bout sending one out. My wife is getting me one for Christmas 🙂

(Thats a bit unfair on the route name though. Waddage and chimes both climb through that move 😉).

In reply to deacondeacon:

Nice one - all the more for CAC Thanks to Mrs Deacon! 

Just demonstrating my ignorance of The Torr - I've only ever observed that territory through belay glasses! 

Cheers, Dom
