Vertical Life App | Highball Launch

Vertical Life is a digital guidebook for routes and problems around the centre. Each set will be uploaded by the setter and you will be able to track and like climbs. This gives you the ability to monitor your grades and keep an up to date tick list around the centre. The Vertical Life App will be launched within February at some point, so keep an eye out this month.

We will be using Vertical Life alongside its online Scorecard which many of you may have been using anyway throughout The Big Flash, Nukids and Winter Bouldering League. This is to help eliminate excess paper use, following the trend of the cafe!

We will make it clear when we are LIVE within the app, with a run through on how to track, log and rate climbs. We’re excited about this next step for Highball so we hope you guys are too!

“Climbing with Theo” | A Ben Weeks Story

Our instructors often have regular 1 on 1 sessions with children and adults requiring a certain type of needs. We asked one of our instructors, Mr Weeks, to write up a little blog about his experiences with one of his regular young climbers, Theo. Take a read of this heart felt article here.
