What Can You Win?:

There will be 1 winner each month (July-September) who will win a selection of Mountain Equipment climbing clothing, up to the MSRP value of £350, dependant on their final choice. There will be a further [1] winner, chosen from the initial 3 winners, who will win a personalised rock climbing coaching day at Plas Y Brenin, Wales.

The Prize is subject to availability (including availability of styles). The Prize may not be exchanged for a cash value, nor is it transferable. The Prize is subject to winner confirmation (i.e. Mountain Equipment has been able to contact winners and has been able to confirm eligibility). Mountain Equipment has the right to change, alter or withdraw the competition or Prize at any time due to any change in any applicable law or any events outside the control of Mountain Equipment. Mountain Equipment shall not be responsible for any delay, cancellation or rescheduling of the Prize. If any part of the Prize is not available or claimed (for whatever reason), Mountain Equipment is under no obligation to supply an alternative prize.

What is excluded from the Prize?:

It is the winners’ responsibility to organise and pay for anything excluded from the Prize. The coaching experience does not include travel costs, food or overnight accommodation.

How are winners selected?:

The monthly winners will be selected by a member of our Pro-Team. The final 'Grand Prize' winner will be chosen from the initial 3 winners, and will be chosen by a panel of judges from the Mountain Equipment marketing team. The decision of Mountain Equipment is final and binding on all entrants. No correspondence will be entered into regarding the selection of the winners (other than with the winners themselves). The winners will be notified via message on Instagram. The winner must respond to the message advising them of their win no later than 1 week after the initial confirmation email was delivered.

In the event that the winner does not communicate his/her acceptance of the Prize within 1 week, Mountain Equipment reserves the right to pick another winner (in accordance with the procedure set out in this section) and the original winner will waive his/her right to the Prize.
