The Hope Valley College climbing club visited the Works climbing wall in Sheffield recently, with so many students that it had to be two separate visits. Staff and students split into small teams and attempted the hundreds of climbing ‘problems’. This is a bouldering wall, so no ropes; just climb up and then down carefully or jump onto the cushioned floor below! Everyone loved the experience and we even bumped into some College alumni whose current climbing standards are inspiring. The climbing club is now looking forward to the Sheffield inter-schools bouldering competition being held in the spring and our very own bouldering competition at the Hope Valley Adventure Film Festival on March 9th, 2018.
