Climb for Climate is an initiative by Mons Royale to encourage people this Black Friday to put down their devices, walk away from their screens and take a rain check from their favourite shop and spend more time in nature. So, whether you are a biker, climber, hiker or skier, whatever your passion, Mons Royale is encouraging you to clock up as many vertical meters as you can.

By measuring their vertical gain, people will be raising money for the biodiversity work dedicated to protecting Old Growth forests on Vancouver Island in BC, Canada. Starting at midnight Thursday 25th November until midnight Sunday 28th November participants have 3 days to log as many vertical meters as possible, using any form of physical activity.

 Nice idea . Too bad the trails are blown out from non-stop rain and the backcountry is crap. Best bet might be to do stairs at an office building.

 Ugh, did It even stop raining from the last record braking storm before the next one started?

While I understand this was planned in advance, when the article was posted on Thursday the weather was well known about.
