Fantastic ‘bouldering’ skills demonstrated by YRs 7 and 8

Some of our YR 7 and 8 pupils have been enjoying the challenges of ‘Bouldering’ this year as an extra curricular activity. Bouldering is rock climbing stripped down to its raw essentials. Leaving behind ropes and harnesses and just using climbing shoes and a bag of chalk over safety mats, the challenge is to climb short but tricky bouldering “problems” (a route, or sequence of moves) using balance, technique, strength and your brain!

The pupils have picked up the technique so quickly that the twelve of them have just achieved Level 1 of the National Indoor Bouldering Award Scheme (NIBAS) – a nationwide scheme designed to provide a structured progression for complete novices through to experienced indoor boulderers.
