A GROUP of King’s Ely Senior’s Year 9 climbers headed to Derbyshire at the weekend to learn some of the foundation skills required for their Level 1 Climbing Award.
On June 8th, the students escaped the rain by heading indoors to The Foundry Climbing Centre in Sheffield, where they learnt how to attach themselves securely to the rope and belay each other up the routes. The latter part of the day was spent coaching movement over steeper terrain.
The following day saw the group consolidating their new skills at the iconic Stanage Edge, which is the longest rock face in the UK.
What an action-packed couple of days – well done all!
