Last Friday, the students who have been regularly attending our students indoor rock climbing club (open to all year groups after school on Wednesdays) were given the opportunity to travel to Calshot Activities Centre for the afternoon to use the skills they’ve been developing at school on much bigger, higher and more challenging walls.
The small group were challenged to both climb as independently as possible in their groups (while still under staff supervision) and to try to push their climbing grades on harder routes. They achieved both of these aims, achieved some routes they certainly wouldn’t have been able to complete a few months ago and demonstrated a good level of competence in terms of belaying their partners and managing the safety system.
A gallery of photos is now online. Many thanks to the students who attended and staff who supported.
Any Harrow Way students who wish to take part in climbing club from the new academic year, please speak to or e-mail Giles Davis in the IT office to book a place in the club.
