Climbing - Sept 2010 - Corby Crags

The Wallsend Explorers were due to go on a Canal boat trip last weekend but due to damage to the boat, this trip has had to be postponed. As Ben and Norman were at a loose end, they decided at very short notice (about 24hrs) to take a trip climbing at Corby Crags near Alnwick.

A fun day was had by all. It was a good opportunity to brush up on or learn climbing, knotting and belaying skills, everyone taking turns to climb and belay each other.

Judging by the Success of the day - we will be doing it again!

This trip marked the first official non meeting night activity for new Assistant Leader Don - we hope it's the first of many!

It also saw the Wallsend Explorers revisit one of the first 'days out' we made as a Unit just over three years ago. We've come a long way in three years - lets keep it up!
