This event is part of The Big SPRING CLIMB 2020; our weekend of indoor climbing and bouldering in Manchester - check out the main event page for more information on what else is going on!

On the Sunday we'll be climbing at Awesome Walls - with it's famous 23.5m Tall Walls  - one of the highest artificial climbing walls in England!! - but if climbing isn't for you then we'll be bouldering too.

What is Bouldering? It'is a form of climbing, often considered as the 'purest' form of climbing because of its emphasis on technique, balance, and body positioning, without the need for ropes. If you're a seasoned boulderer, you won't need convincing of its benefits: from the physical - improved strength, tone, balance, power and coordination; mental - problem solving, focus, concentration and body awareness; to the emotional - relaxation, a sense of achievement and a feeling that mind and body are working together perfectly ('feeling psyched'). On top of all of this, bouldering is a very social sport, where you can hang out with mates and each have a go and discuss solutions to the routes (known as 'problems') regardless of ability. 

Who's it for? This event is for members of all abilities, whether you're a pro climber, or an absolute beginner whose never climbed much more than a staircase before, you're sure to have fun and hopefully progress you're bouldering on this event.  If you are new to bouldering then sign up to this event, let the event leader know and look out for the guys in black ODL tee shirts on the day, whole give you a free introductory guided session and go through everything you will need to know to start bouldering safely.

What will it cost?  Awesome walls are very generously offering members of Outdoorlads a discounted entry rate of just £8 for the day (including shoe hire) which you will need to pay this directly to the centre when you arrive. For more information, see the venue information below and if you haven't been to an Awesome Walls centre before it is advisable to register online through their website before attending to save time when you arrive - as well as signing up to this event.
