It was an action packed day in Tauranga at Rocktopia with over 150 athletes competing in bouldering, clip and climb, speed ladder and climbing for the BOP Secondary School Rock Climbing Championships.
Three age groups competed on the day -Intermediate years 7-8 Juniors year 9-10 and Senior year 11-13 champions.
Over 18 schools from around the BOP from Intermediates to Colleges competed in a team’s event with three trophies up for grabs. It was a close competition in the intermediate age group with Mokoia Intermediate taking home the trophy.
Junior cup went to Rotorua Lakes High School and the Senior trophy remained with last year winners John Paul College.
Some of the climbing was intense at times, everybody had a great day and showed brilliant sportsmanship.
To top it off, Rocktopia turned it on with some fantastic hospitality and hot drinks and food, on a chilly day.
Congratulations to everyone who competed in this year's competition and a special thank you to the Rocktopia for running such awesome events.
