Zone 3 resetting!

Thats right, this week the lovely climbs on the front of the boulder and the Tenaya slab are coming down! However, on Wednesday, we have the magnificent Yann Genoux in to give us a bunch of new exciting routes to try out!


Private Taster Sessions!

Want to do something fun with some friends, or colleagues? Maybe trying to think of a good unique gift for a birthday or even a wedding? Well This week, and pretty much every week, we have private taster sessions Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday, available to anyone of ages 4+! These are at 14:00, and you’ll have an hour introduction to Bouldering with a personal instructor! For more on this, go here!

Introduction to Competitions

Interested in our comp nights? Want to know more?

With the Big Flash just round the corner, the end of The Summer Bouldering League nigh, and the start of the Winter Bouldering league closing in fast, we thought it would be a good idea to organise a FREE (subject to the regular entry fee) ‘Intro to Comps’ workshop this Friday.

If you’ve never entered a comp before and want to know what they’re all about, Mr Guy Sir will be on hand to talk you through everything you need to know, including:

  • What is the Nukids Comp?
  • What are the Bouldering Leagues all about?
  • What’s the difference between the two?
  • How ‘good’ do I need to be?
  • Why would I/Should I enter?
  • How do teams work?
  • Basic comp tactics – get a head start by using your head
  • How does the scoresheet work?

Guy will even organise a mini ’10 bloc comp’ so you can try it out with a scoresheet and everything – we may even do a mini raffle.

If you’re interested, just meet Guy in the waiting area at 8pm, this Friday – 15 September.

Pizza Night!

This Thursday is the illustrious pizza night, where we wheel our amazing pizza oven outside and make some handmade pizza! This months theme is Tastes of the World, and this week we are in Lebanon! Thats right, a delicious Manakish style pizza is in store, so come on over and give it a try!


Highball Play!

Our newest and most exciting climbing activity. It’s a 60 minute session suitable for children from age 4 to 16 – this means it’s perfect for siblings, friends and family members of different ages who previously would have been split across our different activities.

We have sessions available this week On Tuesday & Thursday at 17:00, and Saturday and Sunday at 16:00. To get more information and to book, head here!

Bouldering Club

Our instructors aim to maximise bouldering time whilst also reinforcing safe practice, promoting self preservation and helping young climbers develop basic climbing techniques, helping them to become independent, considerate boulderers. We have 2 Bouldering Club sessions on this week, Monday at 17:00, and Friday at 16:30, for anyone ages of 8-17. With your piqued interest, more information is here!
