Silvia Fitzpatrick working for Channel 4
Silvia was approached by Channel 4 this Spring to help organise a day of rock climbing for the Four in a Bed television programme.
http://www.channel4.com/programmes/four-in-a-bed/4od#3308345 - the link works for about a month. Silvia is on starting at about the ten minute mark.
The programme pits 4 sets of B+B/Hotel owners against each other and this series was based in Andalucia. One of the B+B's was based in Torcal and the owners wanted all the contestants to try climbing.
Silvia organised a day of climbing at the nearby Villanueva del Cauche where there was a slabby corner that was ideal for those climbing for the first time.
It was a fantastic, sunny day although a touch cool and Silvia rigged up a top rope for the hoteliers and a series of filming positions for the film crew.
The day worked really well and Silvia even sported an Association of Mountaineering Instructors T shirt to help promote the organisation.
