CYCC's first international climbing exchange starts this weekend. Climbcool, a climbing club based in Charleroi, Belgium will be sending a team of young climbers over to Ireland in the company of Stephane Hanssens and Sean Villanueva O'Driscoll.

Stephane and Sean are part of the famous Belgian climbing team, gifted with ace climbing and singing skills. The American Alpine Club journal has a great write up of their climb in Venezuela.

Week one will see the combined team of CYCC Senior Lead and Climbcool climbers climbing at locations around Ireland and week two will see the combined team travel to Belgium to climb there. 

Lets hope that the yellow disk makes an appearance while the guys are in Ireland (at least once).
