Climb And Wave

Nine service users from DP had a great afternoon at the Bolton One climbing wall recently, thanks to Graham and Helen, experienced climbers from local charity WAVE Adventure.

Some were new to the experience but others had climbed in the mountains of their home countries, in Afghanistan and Palestine.

All used the ropes and hand holds to climb at least 20 feet, with several reaching the top with a view out across the town at 50 feet. There are now plans for a women only visit, and for visits to do some outdoor climbing soon at Wilton Quarry, just off Belmont Road.

Wave is a charity worth visiting.
