Visit to Avertical World in Dundee 30/12/17

It was a a typical dreich morning in Dundee as the fresh faced children and rather bleary eyed adults arrived at Avertical World in Dundee, an old church converted, extremely well, into an indoor climbing facility.

Glen Nevis Weekend

We had a great weekend in Glen Nevis mainly based at Polldudh area.  Activities included bouldering, multi pitch and trad climbing.  Everyone had a great time both during the day when climbing and in the evening as most stayed at the same campsite.  We were supported throughout by EICA Ratho instructors.

 

First outdoor event at Kirriemuir

 On 1st of May, we headed to Kirriemuir for our first outdoor meet of the year.  We had a large turnout and everyone enjoyed the day.  Everyone had a great time getting lots of routes ticked.  We again had EICA Ratho coaches in attendance.

At Home at EICA:Ratho

We didn't bring a camera to our day at Ratho recently which is a pity because the 16 Quickdraw Climbers and their families made for a busy day in the arena. Our older members, Jodie, Keira and Kirsten were on hand to lead a group warm up and to mentor younger climbers throughout the day. We mixed things up a bit so that people climbed with different partners, some new, some familiar.

2013-2014 Competition Results Review

Yorkshire Dales Trip

A great weekend over the border in Yorkshire. Saturday found the club at Robin Proctor's Scar getting stuck in to the limestone. Older climber lead routes and fixed top ropes for the younger climbers to use. Sunday's weather wasn't so kind (OK the rain was torrential at times) so we headed underground to White Scar Caves followed by a quick session at the Kendal Climbing Wall before returning north. Thanks to Dave Brown and Andrea Partridge for the photos

 

It was Keira's birthday on the Sunday so we had cakes
