Boarders Go Great Big Tree Climbing

On a glorious Sunday afternoon on 15th May the boarders escaped to do some Great Big Tree Climbing at Grey Court National Trust house near Henley. They ascended 20 metres up a great oak tree, daring to be first, using only the rope and foot loops and without help from branches. The top time up and down came in at 20mins. Aside from it being exhausting work, we had a relaxing time there with some French cricket and tea in the sun. A welcome break from those academic ropes!
