Images and news articles have hit the stands around Europe about the successful DWS Exeter event last weekend. This event hosted by The Quay Climbing Centre brings sport climbing to the public eye.
Over 1,000 spectators and athletes looked on during the weekend festivities. Crowds gathered both days as climbers took to the pro set routes. Each route, getting harder in difficulty, was climbed by top men/women and under 16 years of age categories. The floating competition wall topped out about 7 meters over the canal water. Applause, splashes and huge local support will bring this event back next year for sure. It was a spectacular event acknowledging the values climbing brings to everyone.
A second success again falls to the supporters and attendees of this year’s event. EP helped man a booth for Climbers Against Cancer (CAC). We were excited to report back £1000 of t-shirt sales! Again, thanks to a huge community support, CAC continues to raise awareness and contributions toward cancer research.
