The Quay Climbing Centre, Exeter, yesterday hosted the SW Schools Climbing Championships.
Competing against 18 schools from throughout the South West and undergoing a series of 13 climbs each during the course of the day our team of Isabel Kumik, Nick Kumik, Gus Bascombe, Max Foulser and Sophie Riley did brilliantly to come SECOND. This is a fantastic achievement for this newly created group.
The next event is a bouldering competition – the score for this event will be added to Sunday’s to determine the overall regional champions.
It was a particularly successful weekend day for Nick and Isabel as they also competed in the first of three rounds in the South West Individual Climbing Championships on Saturday. Isabel won her age category which is an excellent start in her bid to represent the South West in the National Championships later in the year. Congratulations to her and to all the team for their combined efforts. Gill Sinden
