Only way is up for climbers

A SHEFFIELD climbing wall will play host to a group of adventurers who are planning to cover the 26-mile distance of a marathon - vertically.

The climbers are visiting seven UK indoor climbing walls in a week to raise money for Cancer Research UK, and will visit The Foundry in Mowbray Street, Sheffield, on January 27.

Those taking part in the Big Vertical Marathon Tour will set off from their home wall in Devon on January 22 and visit Newcastle, Birmingham, Liverpool, Guildford and Bristol as well as Sheffield.
