Drive colleagues up the wall!
The Climbing Challenge, along with Mountain Biking and Badminton, form the Individual Pursuits Sports Series in the Aberdeen Corporate Decathlon.
The Sport: Climbing was first heralded as a sport in England in the late 1880s after a well publicised solo ascent of the Napes Needle in Cumbria by Walter Parry Haskett Smith. Since then, rock climbing has attracted increasing numbers of participants.
The Challenge: This event will include a variety of set challenges, designed by the pro's at Transition Extreme's iconic climbing centre. Each team will receive a minimum of 1 practice session coached by Transition's expert staff.
Never been rock climbing before? If not, this is your chance to try an extreme sport in the relative safety of the indoor, artificial structures instead of the real thing!
Teams will consist of 6 members that will break down into two sub-teams. These teams will take turns competing in various assents that will be worth points. The winner will be decided at the end of the Challenge by the team that has earned the most points.
All training sessions have been booked up. If you are unable to attend your team's group training and you are not a registered as a 'competent climber', please get in touch with your captain. There will be a ‘mop up’ training session on Friday March 23rd at 7pm. Spaces are limited.
Please contact Danielle on firstname.lastname@example.org or 01224 238439 to book your team's training.
There is limited parking in the car park at Transition Extreeme. However, there is additional street parking avaiable around the venue. Please car-share whenever possible.
