Ladies Night | Whats On

The first Monday of every month hosts our Ladies Night. It is a chance for women from all walks of life to come and get involved in bouldering and climbing, and ideal for meeting like minded people.

As a female, you will have the opportunity to get highly discounted introductory sessions, which are great for beginners and those who want to supervise any friends, family, and children. We also have free coaching sessions where you’ll receive professional advice on technique, or just some encouragement to advance that bit further (or even up to the next grade).

On the 8th of January we have Ladies Bouldering Inductions, Ladies Auto-Belay Inductions (must be a competent Boulderer), and Ladies Coaching sessions. Spaces are limited so book online before they fill up! Head here for more.

James Potter | View From The Crew

20171218-IMG_1201bw

As a lot of you already know me there’s not much to say about myself! Like most people here, I’m obsessed with climbing or just exercise in general. I’m always set to challenge myself and keep pushing forward, even if the mood doesn’t strike me right, so of course it brings me great joy to see our new Squad Zone open up and having some hard comp style problems to help me get were I want.
Speaking of the Youth Squad, I’ve had the pleasure of training with our younger members and help and encourage them to achieve their goals, and seeing the progress in their climbing and strength is amazing, they’re all absolute animals, and it just goes to show what hard work and dedication can do for you, when you focus your time and energy into something you’re passionate about.
This is how we should all walk into 2018, put 100% into the things we are passionate about, give it your time and energy, whether its a little or a lot, and you will realise your goals. I look forward to seeing what the squad have offer in 2018 when they return for more training.

And if you see me around and fancy a hard climbing session after eating your weight in food over Christmas, or just want a proper beasting, come and see me, have a chat, and we will do just that.

All the best for 2018,
J.P.

Crack School | WIDE BOYZ @ Highball

The Wide Boyz are here next month, however the Crack School is FULL! All of the 48 spaces over the day are now fully booked, and whilst this is sad, this does mean that we are going to be receiving a very special Crack Volume from The Wide Boyz, made under the instructions of Pete Whittaker and Tom Randall themselves!

If you’re one of the lucky few who managed to book on to the session, then we hope you’re as excited as we are for it.
