LONGMYND HIKE 50th:
High Sports are really proud to be staging this exclusive lecture of Pete’s historic and stunning solo ascent of El Cap. We hope you can come along, if not we’d appreciate it if you could spread the word, all profits go to charity. Don’t miss this chance to meet the lad who put UK climbers firmly back in the Yosemite climbing history book.

Results for the recent Mercia Hill Trial are available here (short course) and here (long course).
Thanks to all competitors and helpers for another successful Mercia Hill Trial. Everyone came back within the time limit, although a few had issues finding one or two of the controls. I hope you all had fun and managed to practise your navigation skills on a fair but challenging course.
The final results are linked above with midway splits courtesy of Suzanne. The winners are as follows:
The results after 5 rounds are available here (sorry they're a little late).
