Is Sheffield the Climbing Capital of the UK?
Is Sheffield the Climbing Capital of the UK?

If you are in to climbing or bouldering then Sheffield and the surrounding areas are the place to be. This is even the case for children and young People throughout the city as the Mini Works at the Climbing Works have again reached record numbers of schools engaged in the Schools Bouldering competition throughout the Spring Term. Schools entered their teams and took pupils on a qualifying round to the Mini Climbing Works to undertake a number of challenges. This has provided a number of pupils who have never experienced this activity previously, with the opportunity to try something new and to represent their school. Over 35 Primary Schools and 8 Secondary Schools from across the city entered the opportunity and the top 10 schools in both the Primary and Secondary category are now invited to the Sheffield Finals event to celebrate their achievements. Well done to all schools and pupils for taking part.
