Goody Bag For All

Beal Folio Rope Bag

Everyone who goes on the Alpine Festival will get a goody bag. The goody bag itself is a Beal Folio Rope Bag kindly donated by Lyon Equipment and Beal. Yes that's for everyone who goes on the Alpine Festival.

The Beal Folio protects your rope form the dirt on the ground and also reduces the likelyhood of twisting or knotting your rope. And best of all you don't have to coil your rope!

The Beal Folio Rope/Goody Bag contains (so far...we are working on filling this up)

  • A discount voucher from Joe Brown's Shops: good for a month.
  • A Lyon Equipment crampon bag
  • A Petzl key fob
  • Petzl posters
  • A Rockfax guidebook
  • Samples of Nikwax
  • BMC stuff
  • 50 years of Plas y Brenin Book
