Guides enjoy climbing wall at Ghyll Royd School
4:00pm Monday 21st October 2013 in News
Local Guides, Brownies and Rainbows from Burley, Menston and Ilkley enjoyed a fantastic day of climbing at Ghyll Royd School in Ilkley Road, Burley-in-Wharfedale.
Provided by Carnegie Great Outdoors, the girls were shown the techniques of climbing and were then able to tackle the wall themselves.
It was a fantastic day enjoyed by everyone.
The event had been due to be held at Burley Oaks Primary School, but a last-minute problem nearly caused it to be cancelled due to the size of the climbing wall. Fortunately Ghyll Royd was able to accommodate the structure so that the event could go ahead.
The organisers were so delighted that the event could go ahead that climbing wall will now feature at the school’s open day on March 22 next year.
