Bouldering Bowfell at Humphrey Head

What an incredible day we have enjoyed in Bowfell Class exploring Humphrey Head with our Dallam Outdoor Education team.  Once kitted out with our helmets and our back-packs over-flowing with refreshments, we set off to explore the headland.  Our first few challenges enabled us to develop our skills, our confidence and learn how to support and encourage one-another.  Each section became a little more tricky and included squeezing through tiny gaps in the rocks; pulling ourselves through ‘rabbit holes’; scrambling up the hillside; and traversing along very narrow ledges.

Every child showed determination, resilience and enthusiasm every step of the way!

At the end of the morning we enjoyed a wonderful picnic lunch in the outdoors before heading up to the summit of Humphrey Head.
