Logan Park Climbing Club Trip to Long Beach

Francine Vella —

On a beautiful late summer evening in March a group of Logan Park students tackled the Pinnacles at Long Beach. 

Tim Bartholomew, from Dunedin Climbing met us at Long Beach to cover the finer points of climbing. After a safety briefing and breaking up into threes to work together, two on the ground as safety team and one climber our students were bravely up and away. 

 The highlight as a staff member was watching our students overcome fear and struggle and make it to the top of the more challenging climbs. The smiles and thumbs up said it all. Special thanks to Paul Denys, our parent helper and Tim Bartholomew, Dunedin Climbing. 

Students involved were: Anna Denys, Molly Stebbings, Violet Gallop, Matai Bowen, Cameron Monteath, Louis Freeman, Panashe Gwavava and Louis Grace.
