Today we had a proper west coast thaw with continuous heavy rain, very strong wind and much of the lovely snow and ice on the mountains racing down the streams to the loch. While we wait to see what will be left behind the best use of a day like this is to go to the climbing wall. Unfortunately we still don't have a climbing wall in Fort William but, with your help, we could have.

“The Three Wise Monkeys Climbing project is a truly exciting prospect for Fort William and the climbing community in the UK that visit for the world class summer and winter climbing. Having a new indoor activity for all ages and abilities open year round would be a huge benefit to people who love this amazing area, but get stuck when the weather is poor. We’re crowdfunding because we want the Lochaber locals and visiting outdoor community to have a chance to be part of the history of our project, we’ve put together some great rewards too so as well as a brilliant new climbing centre in town, everyone will get something back for supporting us.”
With exactly 96 hours to go to raise their final amount, they have only £7,444 to go! This will make a huge difference to Fort William whether you visit us here or whether you live here. Please support the project if you can.
