Climbing Out at Harborough Rocks

August 29th, 2016

iDID climbers head to the peak district

With thanks to the Northants Community Foundation the Climb Out club members got their first taste of real rock.

It's been 5 months since we launched the Climb Out club which is aimed at young people affected by low well-being and mental health issues. Since the club began, our climbers have made leaps and bounds in their skill development with thanks to EarthWorks UK, our partners on the project. Taking advantage of the weather, we decided to take the next step and head outdoors!

Our instructors for the day were Kurt and his team from Adventure Ways, a fantastic organisation providing outdoor learning experiences. They were patient, clear, and very adaptable which was extremely important with the variety of needs in our group. Although everyone was a bit nervous at the start of the day, it was smiles all round on the way home. Not only did we try climbing but we also enjoyed walking around Harborough Rocks, Scrambling and Abseiling... so much fun!
