METOLIUS competition

by Mick Ryan – An Early Christmas! Christmas came early for the winner of the 25th question in the METOLIUS COMP: 25 years, 25 cams, 25 days. 24 Metolius cams had been won by 24 climbers (see winners below) then Beyond Hope pulled out a special Christmas present for question 25 which was, Q25: What is the name of Metolius new single stem cam? (and it´s just arrived in the UK) The answer, as many climbers sent in was, the Master Cam. Luke Ward from Selby was the winner and Mike Lloyd of Beyond Hope notified Luke. Hi Luke, Congratulations, you´ve won the Metolius 25 Years Competition for your answer to Question 25. As the lucky winner on the last day, we´vedecided to give you a surprise Christmas present, a whole set of the new Master Cams! We will send these via courier so that you get them before Christmas. Have a great Christmas & New Year, and I hope you enjoy using your new Master Cams! Congratulations again! Mike. Luke, understandably, was over the moon at winning eight shiny new Master Cams. Luke said, “Thank you for your festive generosity; it is much appreciated and means I will receive at least one Christmas present appropriate to my interests… rather than the usual toiletry sets! I´ve never used Metolius cams before but I am really looking forward to trying them out and I´m sure they will enhance my scrabblings on Yorkshire and Peak District outcrops (if they ever dry).Hopefully, they will give me the margin I need to push on during those long and lonely limestone leads (where I think their narrow heads will come in very handy).And who knows, now for once I may stand a chance of fulfilling a New Year´s grade improvement resolution! Thank you and Merry Christmas.
