Matt Bush (2002G) has taken the rock climbing world by storm as he attempts even higher rock climbs without any gear or ropes (free-solo).

An investors evening will be held at The Mitre on the 10th May from 7pm onwards. All are welcome to attend (entrance is free and drinks and snacks will be served).
