Quickdraws 3 Peak Challenge Success

Early on Sunday 7th November 22 members of the Quickdraw Climbing Club turned up at EICA to attempt to climb the equivalent height of Britain’s top 3 peaks  Ben Nevis, Snowdon and Scafell Pike (3407 metres in total).  At the end of the 4 hours they had allotted themselves for the challenge, and after some impressive individual performances, they in fact topped 7,290m, more than twice their target and the equivalent of the World’s 92nd highest peak, Mount Mana in the Himalayas.

Chair, Scott Forsyth said “We were a bit worried as some of our climbers were unable to attend, but the kids achieved our original target in just over 90 minutes and they were all so keen we just kept going.  EICA kindly allowed us the use of their slab wall so we could stick together and we had a rota of parents belaying.  The funds we raise will be used to fund our 3 year plan to develop our kids’ climbing skills and our adults’ coaching skills.”
