Last night I finally got around to presenting a cheque for €580 to this years benificiary of our Lecture Series – Cork Youth Climbing Club

The primary role of the Cork Youth Climbing Club is to develop rock climbing in Co. Cork and to help develop and produce young climbers that can safely take part and enjoy the growing sport of outdoor rock climbing. Apart from meeting weekly in the Mardyke Arena Climbing Wall they partake in numerous trips both home and abroad. Remember that indoor climbing is only a means to an end, a tool we use to develop the necessary skills & fitness to climb outdoors. Participation in competitions such as the Youth Climbing Series is also a focal point each year in their efforts. To date the club has performed with distinction in all competitions.

We would like to say a BIG BIG thank you to ALL those who donated some really brilliant prizes for the event raffles which helped raise even more cash!!! THANKS SO MUCH TO YOU ALL!!!
