Lead climbing

These past few months I have been so very lucky to have worked with 4 young climbers looking to learn to lead climb. To consolidate my CWLA training I provided my time for free and they gave up their Wednesday evenings. We started with bottom roping with 4 young people who were nervous but excited about the prospect of lead climbing. A few months on we now have 4 confident young climbers who are trying (and completing) goals and climbs they never thought possible.

I was having so much fun tonight that I forgot to take a group photo

So, to Ellie, Eve, Freyja and Rachel I say a great big WELL DONE. Also I would like to say thank you to each of you for being absolutely awesome!

(And of course thank you for the pressies)

Keep climbing, keep aiming high and, no matter how many times you fall, get back on and enjoy every moment!

Climber of the Month award

March saw the start of our monthly competition. The prize goes to the climber that promotes safety at all times, supports their fellow climbers and is always trying their hardest.

As you can see from the photo, James was very happy about his Wild Country and Climbing Wall Solutions prizes. Who will win in April……..

Children’s harness

Having children myself and also being an instructor, I have found this review most insightful. It is great to have this sort of information because, as James Wynne says at the start of his review, there are not too many shops around where you can go in and try a variety of kids harnesses ion to see what fits best.
