Rockfax are pleased to announce a fund raising initiative which is being launched in conjunction with the new Dorset Bouldering guidebook. The aim is to raise £2000 to help towards stabilising the paths on the approaches to the crags on Portland, many of which were damaged during the storms in the winter of 2013/14. The approach to Battleship in particular suffered some very serious landslips.
The funds will be raised by making a £1 donation from the first 1500 copies of Dorset Bouldering that are sold, online from the Rockfax web site and elsewhere from retailers. The remaining £500 will come from ongoing online sales from the Rockfax web site. We will also encourage people to make their own point of sale donations and these will be used to supplement the final total so hopefully we can raise even more than £2000!
The money will be given to the BMC ACT who have agreed to ring fence this money to ensure that it is targeted to the correct projects when required.
