Nightclimb and cliff face sleepover 2017
- 01 January 2017 to 31 Dec 2017
- Snowdonia, Wales
1.15am... Vision limited to the beam of your head-torch as you inch your way upwards. Glancing down you can't see the ground, it’s too dark and you're too high up now. Looking up you see your goal – a tent attached to the cliff face and your bed for the rest of the night. Your sleep separated from the void below by a sleeping bag, camping mat and the thin nylon floor of the tent. Morning suddenly seems a long way off...
Not many people can say that they’ve climbed 175ft at night by head-torch and then slept the rest of the night on a thin piece of nylon suspended from the rock face! It will take nerve, strength and determination.
This event is for just two people at a time and no climbing experience is necessary as you will receive full training during the day in preparation for the epic night ahead. You will be very well looked after – hotel accommodation the night before, breakfasts and a three-course meal are included. You will be supported by a team of two highly experienced climbing instructors and one further member of support crew.
Normally this event is run over a weekend from Friday night – Sunday morning but mid-week dates are possible. The event can run in April, May, late-July, August and September to allow enough hours of darkness to complete the challenge.
To take part in this unique, once in a lifetime challenge we ask you to pay a non-refundable £150 registration fee, we will not ask you to pay this until we have two participants registered. We will ask you to pledge to raise a minimum of £1,200 per person.
We will provide you with full support and ideas to ensure you feel confident in raising the pledged minimum. You are also able to nominate a branch or centre to receive your support if you wish.
We understand the commitment, courage and thought that goes into participating in a challenge event on behalf of Cats Protection and promise we will do our very best to give you all the help and support you need to have a successful challenge and raise lots of much-needed funds to help us care for cats and kittens.
