Southern Schools Indoor Climbing Competition - Hurstpierpoint College

Southern Schools Indoor Climbing Competition

Hurst were thrilled to host the Southern Schools Indoor Climbing Championships at High Sports in Brighton, featuring a mixture of 20 bouldering routes (low-level climbing without ropes) and lead or top-rope routes (high-level ascent with ropes). This popular event attracted more than 100 competitors from different schools and provided a fierce competition. It was fantastic to see such a high level of climbing across all categories with gold medals awarded to Brighton College, Ardingly College, Sevenoaks, Cranleigh and Hurst. However, almost every school walked away with a medal or two.  

It is rewarding to see climbing become a more prominent part of the sporting programmes across schools.  

A big thank you on behalf of the college to Hennig, Fran and Glem for their help throughout the day and allowing the use of their wonderful facilities.
