WIED BABU CLEAN UP

WIED BABU CLEAN UP

Mark your calendars as on Saturday, 15th of September the Malta Climbing Club in collaboration with the UIAA's Respect the Mountains initiative and Let's Do It Malta International clean up day will be organising 'Wied Babu Clean Up'.

In the morning, participants will start collecting all sorts of rubbish that unfortunately litters the approach path and most of the valley. The area directly above and in front of Smoothies Cave is prone to fly tipping, whereas the paths that criss cross the valley are host to all sorts of rubbish.

The club will provide some gloves and sturdy rubbish bags; however participants are encouraged to bring their own sturdy work gloves. Participats should also wear sturdy shoes.

This event will start at 09:00hrs at the Blue Grotto Belvedere.

In the afternoon, the club will be hosting its weekly club meet at Wied Babu (West Side). Various routes are to be found in the lush valley of Wied Babu, limits of Żurrieq. Whether participants want to test their mettle with a long slabby trad route, clip bolts on upside down routes or play around on low level boulders, the valley has it all!

As always, beginners and newcomers to the sport are welcome to join. MCC will provide harnesses, ropes and shoes. Non-members are asked to make a donation of €5.00 for use of club equipment (or join the club for €15.00!). Money generated from these activities will go towards the MCC Bolt Fund.
