The 2023 Rucksack Club Charity Calendar in support of Climbers Against Cancer is on the shelves now!

Thanks to the generosity of The Rucksack Club and some of its individual members, every penny of the purchase price will go to support Climbers Against Cancer in funding research around the world. That’s right – think of it as making a £10 charity donation and getting a free calendar!

Fifty photos taken from the equivalent month of the previous year feature members enjoying the whole gamut of Club activities: climbing, mountaineering, bouldering, fell-running; ice-climbing and via ferrata among other things. From The Matterhorn to The Ben; Gogarth to Georgia; and Cornwall to Chamonix, there’s something for everybody!

Through the worldwide climbing community, CAC https://www.climbersagainstcancer.org/ aims to increase awareness and raise funds for research in the continued fight against a disease that affects so many. Climbers Against Cancer is a non-profit organisation, with all proceeds donated directly to cancer research facilities throughout the world. Last year, with your support, we raised over £5,000 for CAC – let’s see if we can go even further this time!

The calendar is available online directly from the CAC Shop: https://www.climbersagainstcancer.org/shop/rucksack-club-cac-calendar/ and from Climb-Europe: https://climb-europe.com/rockclimbingshop/rucksack-club-2023-calendar.html and will also be on sale at local climbing walls. A huge thank you to Climb-Europe, Awesome Walls and the Climbing Works for their support again this year (and watch this space for news of other walls and outlets helping to distribute the calendar - if you'd like to get involved in supporting then please message me!)

What's not to like!? Get one for the kitchen wall, and a spare for the study, and don’t forget a few for stocking-fillers! Thanks in advance for your generous support! 

Cheers, Dom

The Climbing Works will have some of these great calendars.

In reply to Graeme Alderson:

It's only 12 weeks until Christmas (scary I know!) so I'm kicking off an Advent-style countdown. Each week I'll post one of the main monthly images and if someone guesses correctly they'll get a free calendar. As a starter, what's the route featured on the front cover (no cheating if you already have a copy!). Post your guess as a comment. 

Of course, if you can't wait, just pick one up at your local wall or at the CAC Shop: https://www.climbersagainstcancer.org/shop/rucksack-club-cac-calendar/... and remember, it's ten pounds donated to cancer research, with a free calendar thrown in  

Cheers, Dom

I'll give this a go Dom! Is it Howitzer at Wimberry?

In reply to Will Rupp:

Looks like you win, Will. Correct crag  Wimberry Rocks and the route is Sip in Side (f4)

Anyway, you deserve a free calendar having provided the cover photo I'll swap one for a Taghia guide  

Cheers, Dom

It's Green Gully (IV 3) on The Ben - obviously foxed you, and I guess most winter routes look a bit similar! 

Of course, you can still buy your copy directly from the CAC Shop https://www.climbersagainstcancer.org/shop/rucksack-club-cac-calendar/  and remember EVERY PENNY goes to support CAC in funding cancer research.  Cheers, Dom
