‘Brilliant, informative although slightly terrifying!’

On Friday 1st March a group of female students were invited to Derby University sports centre for an indoor climbing event.

The event organised by the Association of Colleges, was designed to promote female focused sport. During their time at the university, the girls worked with Carl and his team to learn how to Abseil, the technique of climbing and even had a go at climbing themselves!


One student described it as ‘Brilliant, informative although slightly terrifying’. As well as learning about a sport that is new to them, the girls have said that because of this opportunity they have gained new friends, and would happily take part in the future!


Well done girls on putting yourselves out there and trying something a little different or maybe out of your comfort zone!
