4 places left
The event will take place at Boulders climbing centre, but don't be fooled by the name - there is plenty of top rope and lead climbing that happens here as well.
Indoor climbing centres offer the challenges of climbing that you'll find on natural outdoor structures; simply indoors. It's a fun way to stay fit, you will quickly begin to develop arm, back, finger, and core strength as a result of the many reaches and holds that are repeated through the completion of the climb.
To come along, you will need to register via the event page, and to climb you will need to pay an entry fee directly to the centre when you arrive. For entry fee prices at the centre go to: www.bouldersuk.com/climbing-centre/climbing.
It is important that all members sign up through the event page to make sure the event leader has all information of the members attending.

What to bring
If you have your own climbing gear i.e. harness, shoes, chalk-bag, Belay plate and screw-gate karabiner, climbing rope, you can bring this along, but please make sure it is in good condition.
As a minimum you will need the use of a climbing harness and a belay device (belay plate and a screw-gate karabiner, or a gri-gri if you have one). If you do not have your own, you will be able to hire what you need directly from the centre. For prices please use the link: www.bouldersuk.com/climbing-centre/climbing.
There are cubby holes at the centre where your belongings can be stored.
What to Wear
It is best to wear either shorts, combats or tracksuit bottoms. No jeans or any form of trouser which hampers movement. A t-shirt or vest is also suitable.
Any jewellery such as rings, watches, chains or bangles should be removed before beginning the session to prevent injury.
There is a cafe at the centre where snacks can be purchased.
