While the Year 13s have had a fun re-introduction to climbing with sessions at Clip 'n Climb and the Resistance Climbing Gym, the Year 12s have been learning the fundamentals of knots and belaying.
Having done an introductory lesson at School, this week they are travelling out to Logan Park High School's indoor climbing wall. After two sessions practicing their techniques and building confidence it will be on to the 'real thing' at Port Chalmers Quarry and Long Beach.
Here are some photos of Wednesday's groups: Will Ryan, Mason Lome-Hindle and Jorden Smith - Logan O'Neill, Josh Bathgate and Adam Scott.
Thanks to Becca (University of Otago) and lead instructor, Tim Bartholomew, for their expert support.
