The first LCETB Bouldering competition was held in Kilfinane Outdoor Education Centre, County Limerick on 8th Feb. A group of thirty of our 1st & 2nd years took on the challenge which involved 10 low level climbs of varying degrees of difficulty. Students were awarded 10 points for completing it on their first attempt,  8 for their 2nd attempt, 6 for their third attempt and 4 points for giving it their best shot. In case scores of two students were the same at the end of the day,  a 'plank challenge' was set. The target when our students arrived was an impressive 7 minutes...but astonishingly,  7 minutes and 10 seconds later we had a both a boy and a girl who had bettered the Kildysart student's time. We will find out during the week how we fared in the climbing comp. Many thanks to the expertise of the enthusiastic Kilfinane  OEC staff for a most enjoyable day.
