Climbing event chalked up as a towering success

Five schools compete in Chalk n’ Choc at Mount Prevost School

The climbing gym at Mount Prevost School got plenty of use on Jan. 31 and Feb. 1 with a pair of events, both known as the Chalk n’ Choc Competitions.

Jan. 31 saw 126 climbers from five schools gather at the gym, and the following night had adult climbers from the Cowichan Valley community taking part.

Cowichan Secondary, Quamichan School, Lake Cowichan School, Brentwood College School and Stelly’s were all represented at the school competition.

“A great day for everyone involved,” said LCS principal Jaime Doyle, who also leads the School District 79 climbing program. “Great problems set by the route-setting team of Elan Jonas McRae and Aidan Doyle. Numerous compliments stating this was the best comp to date in terms of participation, route challenges, and level of fun. Overall a great day, teachers were excited about the day and everyone really looks forward to this day all year.”
