The Climb

The weekend centred around the climb of the Pania della Croce (altitude of 1860m above sea level). This climb took approximately 9 hours, with a reasonably tough and arduous ascent. The view at the top was stunning – a view over the sea, the marble quarries, the Apennines and the Apuanes.

Along with gift aid, the total raised is a staggering £12,875.38.
