Climbing Festival

We took part in a climbing festival at the Magic Wood Climbing Wall this week.
There were over forty children taking part from Devon and Cornwall and it gave us a great opportunity to test our skills and get to know some climbers from other schools.

As well as a session of free climbing and bouldering we also had the chance to work with some experts in three workshops.
These workshops included bouldering skills, lead climbing, film making, speed climbing and a great session about the technology and science of climbing where we dropped rocks on helmets.

There was a speed climbing competition where Marlo and Eloise from Year Five did really well to reach the final.
Marlo produced an amazing final climb, reaching the top of a fifteen metre route in under thirty seconds, and finishing in third position.

In addition to this Blythe, Dylan and Maisy also received prizes for their work during the day.
