Last weekend (13-14/June) the French National Tree Climbing Champs took place in a town called Capdenac Gare en Aveyron. I found the preliminary rounds challenging with a great work climb set up in a Platanus tree (pictured below). It was a wet day on Saturday for the prelimb rounds and it only got worse for the Sunday masters. What can i say, we are used to climbing in the rain in Hamburg!! Thanks to all who took part, and congratulations to Jerome – the new French TCC champ.
