National Climbing Championships 2017February 6th, 2017
On Saturday our junior and senior cadets competed in the Welsh National Cadet Climbing Championships which was held at Boulders Climbing Centre, Cardiff. As we were last year’s defending champions, the pressure was definitely on!
Despite only five training sessions to prepare for this event, all team members gave 100% and climbed with grit and determination to finish as the first CCF team as well as being runners-up in the overall competition.
Another wonderful all-round team performance also saw our cadets as runners-up in the speed-climbing category.
Charlie possibly got the biggest cheer of the event for his final ‘dino’ move in which he launched himself for the last hold and secured a place along with Harry in the Junior final climb-off. Charlie was the only cadet to finish this route which was an incredible performance with only 5 climbing sessions under his belt.
With holds becoming smaller and further apart and the route considerably overhanging, Harry performed impressively to finish runner-up in the Junior technical climbing event.
A massive well done to our CCF Climbing team from Lieutenant Peake.
