Join OutdoorLads for an evening of indoor climbing & bouldering at Redpoint Climbing Centre in Birmingham.

"EXPERIENCED" in this instance is those that have previously climbed & can answer YES to all three of these questions:

  1. Can you fit a climbing harness correctly?
  2. Can you tie in to a rope using the correct knots?
  3. Can you belay another climber correctly & confidently?

Event pages are split into BEGINNER & EXPERIENCED to maintain a decent ratio between the leader & any 'newbies'. We are only allowed to sign in a couple of newbies to be supervised per leader & it also cuts down on waiting around in-between climbs.

If you've never climbed before OR need a refresher on the basics, then please sign up to the BIRMINGHAM Indoor Climbing - Thursday - BEGINNERS event instead - we will happily show you the ropes & teach you everything you need to know to climb safely!

Redpoint Climbing Centre

Indoor climbing centres offer the challenges of climbing that you'll find on natural rock crags - simply indoors! It's a fun way to stay fit, make new friends & develop your climbing skills.

Climbing - Unlike Indoor Bouldering there is a certain amount of skill to be mastered, such as tying in knots & belaying a partner, as well as the climbs being higher than in bouldering. If you are new to climbing or would like a refresher, then this is just for you!! After a quick safety briefing, you will enjoy plenty of climbing. Either learn the climbing & safety techniques with relaxed coaching from one of our friendly, experienced climbing leaders OR if you’ve climbed before, can safely tie into a harness & can competently belay, then there’s plenty of choices of top-rope & lead climbing on offer here.

Bouldering - Instead of tackling long high routes, the 'problems' (as they are referred to) are shorter & focus on technique, balance, body positioning & sometimes power. With the different emphasis, bouldering doesn't have the hassle of climbing with ropes, so it’s excellent (but not necessarily easier) for newcomers.

Redpoint Climbing Centre has more than 75 lines with over 300 routes, set through some spectacular ground including its notorious 'stalactite'. It even features one of the few indoor 'Yorkshire VS cracks' in the country, to test your jamming skills. The bouldering rooms are just as interesting as its climbing routes, over 200 bouldering problems have been organised into graded circuits to provide something for everyone. 

The event ends around 9pm, but the centre is open until 10pm if you have the energy to do a bit more! 

To come along, you will need to register via this event page!
