These past few months I have been so very lucky to have worked with 4 young climbers looking to learn to lead climb. To consolidate my CWLA training I provided my time for free and they gave up their Wednesday evenings. We started with bottom roping with 4 young people who were nervous but excited about the prospect of lead climbing. A few months on we now have 4 confident young climbers who are trying (and completing) goals and climbs they never thought possible.
I was having so much fun tonight that I forgot to take a group photo
So, to Ellie, Eve, Freyja and Rachel I say a great big WELL DONE. Also I would like to say thank you to each of you for being absolutely awesome!
(And of course thank you for the pressies)
Keep climbing, keep aiming high and, no matter how many times you fall, get back on and enjoy every moment!
