Adventures in Weardale : Day 3

Another wet and windy day in Weardale but we escaped the rain by heading to Keswick Indoor Climbing Centre.

We started day 2 by trying out archery and a crate stacking challenge.After dinner we headed out for a walk to Slipwood where we had a game of rounders. The weather might not have been on our side but we were well prepared with lots of layers- the record being 11!
