The Dam Wall Challenge for Bassetlaw play forum

Paul - In the Factory

Intrepid climber, charity worker and last but not least - member of the Alpkit factory team, Paul is heading off to Switzerland soon to take on a challenge to raise money for a kids play forum in Nottinghamshire. 

Paul started with us not long after Christmas having no experience in the factory - now he is a dab hand at it - bringing a smile first thing in the morning too.

Paul's challenge is to climb the worlds largest artificial climbing wall - the Diga Di Luzzone Dam in Switzerland. Surrounded by the beautiful Swiss Alps, this hidden dam has climbing holds from top to bottom, a grueling 165m, 5 pitch (5b, 5c, 6a, 6a+, 6a+) climb. With 30m - 40m steep sustained climbing throughout, we are supporting Paul on this and wish him good luck. 

To find out more about the challenge and support it with some donations check out the Bassetlaw website - http://www.bassetlawplayforum.org/the-big-dam-climb
