Weekend Activities: Third Form rock climbing expedition

Tuesday 11 October 2011

As part of the weekend activity programme Churchill's housemaster Richard Hudson took boys rock climbing to Llanymynech Quarry, half an hour from the School on the Welsh border. All the Third Formers from Churchill's, along with boys from Oldham's, Severn Hill, Port Hill and Moser's, signed up for the trip.

Conditions were blustery but dry, and the boys learned basic belaying, climbing and abseiling skills, most of them successfully going on to complete at least two challenging 60 feet climbs, one of them involving a small but tricky overhang.

A great day was had by all.
