The Big Vertical Marathon

Posted By: Robbie

The Big Vertical Marathon Tour kick off at Dart Rock on Saturday 22nd January. Two climbers will tackle 7 indoor walls around the country in just 7 days and attempt to climb 26.2 vertical miles to raise money for Cancer Research.

That's 42,195 metres between two climbers. Which is nearly 5 times the height of Everest, or in other words, a really, really long way.
