Court Fields climbing success

The Court Fields climbing squad came away with second place in the South West Schools Championships this year. The standard of competition was much higher than previous years and our team contained three young novice climbers who showed a great deal of persistence over a long tiring day.

Special congratulations to Joe Walmsley who flashed every single route as well as winning his category in the British Youth Series contest on the previous day which means that he will be travelling to Edinburgh for the National Finals at the end of April.

Thanks as usual to the Quay for hosting the event.

Climbing champions again.

On 29th March the Court Fields Climbing team entered round 2 of the south west inter-schools climbing competition.  Round 2 was a bouldering competition and the Court Fields squad had to battle hard to maintain their winning margin from the round 1.  Paul Russell Manager of the Quay climbing wall said “it was a very close competition but Court Fields managed to win by just a few points.


The video below shows the team in action.  Thanks to Mr Jenkins for arranging the competition.  We will back again next year to see if we can make it three wins in a row!
