Longley Concrete sponsors Ben Nevis climb
Longley Concrete, the Dewsbury based manufacturer of precast concrete flooring, supported a team of climbers to reach the 1,344 metre summit of Ben Nevis in aid of Whitehills Playgroup in Whitehills, Aberdeenshire. The climbers raised £2500 in support of the local playgroup.
Ben Nevis attracts an estimated 125,000 complete and a further 100,000 partial ascents per year, most of which are made by walkers using the well-constructed Mountain Track (Pony Track) from Glen Nevis on the south side of the mountain. For climbers and mountaineers the main attraction lies in the 700-metre (2,300 ft) high cliffs of the north face. Among the highest cliffs in the United Kingdom, they harbour some of the best scrambles and rock climbs at all levels of difficulty, and are one of the principal locations in the UK for ice climbing.
