CAC Gallery Wrap-Up and KletterRetter Gallery Lowdown

393 images were uploaded and 248 Vengas were shared in an effort to raise awareness for a great cause in the October Climbers Against Cancer Gallery Raffle. A high five to everyone who participated and a reminder that this month the Gallery is back on thanks to KletterRetter!

The photo featured here, which was submitted by Brendan Kuhnert of the aptly named Rocklands stunner, "Perfect", was our favourite of last month's raffle winners.

Keep an eye on your inbox to see if you were one of the lucky winners, if you participated last month, and don't forget to submit again this month for a shot at chalk, skin care and training goodies provided by KletterRetter.

To get in on this raffle and all future Gallery Raffles go to the gallery, and upload some of your favourite moments climbing. The more Vengas your uploaded photo gets, the higher your chances of winning, as each Venga earns you an additional ticket in the raffle draw. At the end of this month, we will contact the lucky winners. Make sure to upload your shots before the 30th so that you don’t miss out!
