On Monday 20th October we took our Explorers for a rock climbing session at Awesome Walls indoor climbing centre in Sheffield. The previous week we had gone through some of the theory behind climbing and this week saw the practical application of what they had learned. For those who wish to persue climbing as a hobby we plan to take a a small group out to do some climbing on real rock in the Peak District and help them earn their Climber badge.
Well done to team No Hopers and team Dom Joly who both took part in Xploreration 2014. Xplorerartion is a county wide activity in which teams of 4 -6, using public transport and their feet only, have to visit as many places as possible from a list of ‘sites of interest’ around South Yorkshire, gaining points for each site visited. The more awkward a site is to visit via public transport, the more points it’s worth.
Congratulations to team No Hopers who came an impressive 3rd out of 14 teams.
