It is with great pleasure that we show this exciting climbing shot again. This week it helped us to victory over our friends Alsager CC in our annual inter-club competition with them. The author is Ralph Browes and he gained a double victory with best print and best projected image, the only disappointment was that he was unable to be present to enjoy the moment.
