With June now nearly over the past month has been a busy one here at RCC with over 3,500 holds taken off, our hold washing has never been better! The Comp Wall kicked things off with 2 days of setting from local boy Rob Lloyd and our Guest setter Yann Genoux. The guys have created a wild mix of colours alongside grades to keep the masses happy and continuously coming back for more!
Outside of setting our crew have been out through their paces with both Head Coach Will and Danny going through Development Coach Assessment. The day ran smoothly with both lads passing, and now looking to use their newly gained qualification within coaching sessions. The rest of the crew have also been earning their stripes with the senior instructors all going through FUNDamentals 1 & 2 as well as physical training. Ian Dunn GB Coach was running the week long stint of training, so thanks be to him for his patience and psyche throughout all 5 days. The week ended with the staff being put through their paces via the Foundation Coach Training, to which all of them got through now for the consolidation period.
With Summer Holidays upon us here at RCC we are “gearing up” for 6 weeks of madness with lots of activities for both kids and adults running daily (a full list of what’s going on is up on the website and in centre). Finally, this summer we are looking to broaden our horizons and head out into the big wide world of Outdoor Climbing in the South! Whispers about RCC heading outdoors have been heard for many years, but I can now confirm that we have begun the process of turning those whispers into reality. So far we have visited and risk assessed a number of crags toward the Wye Valley area, so hopefully later this year or early next we will be releasing the first dates, so watch this space!
All The Best!
