Sunday October 14 saw some young CYCC climbers take part in a Talent Development Day at Dingle's Play at Height climbing wall. The training program was run by Damien O'Sullivan and was focused on developing the climbing potential of our climbers. 

The day started with a fun warm up, followed by climbing on slabs and easy bouldering. Things picked up after lunch as the team moved onto hard bouldering followed lead climbs on Dingle's 12.5M wall. Damien monitored each climber carefully throughout the day guiding and coaching the team through the previous days IBL routes. The club recommends this focused program to all young climbers seeking to improve their climbing performance.
