BBC2 to broadcast live ascent!
A breathtaking live ascent in one of the most spectacular and challenging climbing locations in Britain will be filmed in an ambitious BBC Scotland broadcast this Saturday.
Two of the most prestigious figures from the climbing world will be filmed scaling Sron Uladail on the Isle of Harris – renowned as one of the toughest rock faces in the world. Sron Uladail is the UK's largest overhanging cliff and lies at the heart of an area of outstanding landscape beauty and natural heritage value.
Mountain Hardwears sponsored climber, Tim Emmett and fellow climber Dave Macleod will tackle the daunting overhanging crag in one of the largest outside broadcasts to be mounted in the Outer Hebrides.
The dramatic ascent will be transmitted on Saturday 28 August on BBC Two Scotland, for six hours.
