Wisbech air cadets tackle rock climbing and abseiling on Lake District trip
AIR cadets spent a week rock climbing, abseiling and orienteering during a trip to the Lake District.
Two cadets and one member of staff from 272 (Wisbech) Squadron tackled a series of activities at the National Air Cadet Adventure Training Centre, Windermere.
Cadet Ross Chadney, 15, and Cadet Corporal James Hart, 17, joined Warrant Officer Les Wardle on the trip.
The trio completed a series of mountain peaks, including Fairfield House, which has seven peaks over 600m. The cadets also visited Langdale Valley and Tilberthwaite Way for rock climbing.
Corporal Hart said: “This was a very challenging week for me.
