Western Province finally competes at the 2013 National Lead Competition
This year’s National Lead Climbing Competition was held at The Climbing Barn in Pretoria and for the first time in five years, a team from the Western Cape flew up and took part.
Despite Western Cape Climbing being represented by only eight climbers compared to the thirty-something competitors from KwaZulu Natal and the forty-something climbers from Gauteng, the small team was not deterred and brought some decent competition to the other provinces.
The DHS climbing team is showing that with arm strength comes a generous spirit and enough passion to share their love of climbing with younger learners from the Open Air School. Every Friday, a small group of Foundation Phase Open Air learners, representing the Special Schools community, are trained one on one by the DHS boys, at the DHS climbing wall.
