We’ve reached the end of our final activity weekend for the year 8 Explorers team…..

Day 1  saw us take on the Boulder Barn indoor climbing wall – we love the Boulder Barn!!! Whilst it was sheeting it down outside it was great to see the boys throwing some shapes on the indoor wall! They challenged each other to climb some tough routes, and it was a chance to fit harnesses and get used to roped climbing ahead of Day 2….

Day 2  The plan was to take the boys outdoor climbing to Symonds Yat, but with a full-on deluge we decided to head to Green Spider indoor wall, to test their head for heights! The boys belayed each other, taking responsibility for each other’s safety and securing the ropes for their teammates who were climbing. Everyone challenged themselves and we were so impressed with the boys’ persistence – they wouldn’t be beaten!
