For Durham Climbing Centre Juniors, this year has been the first time we have ever visited a national competition. We are very proud of how our juniors have performed, not just by their climbing performance but in terms of their effort and attitude towards competition climbing.
DCC will be posting updates and pictures from the event on our Facebook and Twitter Pages on Saturday so keep posted folks!
All the staff at DCC wish all juniors in attendance the best of luck and above all have a great day out!
