July News Headline Story

After losing her lower left leg to blood clots in December 2010 Esme Harte eventually dusted off her old climbing shoes in November of the following year and started the long slow, painful process of relearning to climb.

This year, after competing for the first time in the British Mountaineering Para Climbing Series, she came 3rd overall against more experienced, sponsored & coached athletes and has now been selected to represent our country at competitions around Europe.


Anyone wishing to help with sponsorship, coaching or advice can contact Esme at

If you would like to make a donation, however small, to climbing and competition expenses, you can do so at
