First 'Climb a Mile' event at Scone Palace

Recommended Posts

Sounds a great event. I'm trying to get my head around how long its likely to take to climb 1 mile. Have you done some rough maths? Do all climbers need to be up to a reasonable speed to make it in the time frame?

The latest on the first Climb a Mile event from Paul Hanson (Arboriculture Association Scottish Branch Chairman):


"Dear all,


Climbamile will begin at 09.00hrs on Saturday 18th June and run until we have reached 1600 metres or are simply too tired to go on!


Free parking is available at the Sawmill car park adjacent to the A93 between the Scone Pinetum and the old Scone sawmill.


Climbers will need to bring LOLER compliant climbing harnesses and their preferred friction hitches, a helmet with chin strap and any other personal kit normally used for tree climbing.


A climbing system and safety belay will be installed for the duration of the event which all participants will be required to use. For insurance purposes there will be no exceptions!


The tree we are climbing is in a grove of Douglas fir just south and west of the Pinetum proper, an AA banner and display tent will be close by.


You will be required to complete a disclaimer on the day, again for insurance purposes.


As this is a fund raising event for H4H please do what you can to secure sponsorship, T-shirts will be able at cost (£7.50 min) for those participating in the event (in any capacity) T-shirts are available at £15.00 for everyone else.


I look forward to seeing you at some point over the weekend, many thanks in advance for all your support - I believe it is worth it!


If you have any questions, please call or email me.


Best regards,


Paul Hanson"
