Join OutdoorLads For An Evening of INDOOR BOULDERING In Manchester!!

 

What is Bouldering?  It's a form of climbing where instead of long high routes, the 'problems' tend to be shorter and focus on technique, balance, body positioning and sometimes power. Because of this different emphasis, bouldering doesn't have the hassle of climbing with ropes, harnesses and belaying, which makes it an excellent activity for newcomers to the sport. No wonder it's often regarded as the 'purest' form of climbing.

If you're a seasoned climber you won't need convincing about the benefits of bouldering, but for those who've never climbed more than a staircase, the benefits are wide ranging: 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 this, bouldering tends to be a very social sport where you can hang out with mates and each have a go as you feel regardless of what level you climb at.

 

I'm new to Bouldering - can I come along?   If you have never tried bouldering before it is recommended that you have a guided session from the event leader, who will go through everything you will need to know to boulder safely before joining in with the rest of the group.

All those attending the event must also be aware of the centre's own terms and conditions of participation and abide by them, along with any instructions given by the centre’s staff. Everyone must also take responsibility for their own safety while participating in Indoor climbing events.

I've been Bouldering before? As above, everyone attending the event  must abide by the centre's T&Cs etc. As an experienced boulderer you responsible for your own safety, actions and involvement at all times. As such, you should use your own judgement in taking up advice given either by OutdoorLads Volunteers or other experienced climbers.

How Do I Sign Up? If you are not already registered with Rock Over Climbing, please do so here. As well as signing up to this OutdoorLads event page you will need to pay Rock Over for a session. This is most easily done through their app (search "rock over climbing" in your app store), but you can also do this at their reception desk. Don't forget to add your space at the Concessionary Rate to benefit from the discounted rate OutdoorLads has agreed with the centre. As before, we'd ask that all members sign up through the event page to make sure the event leader has all information of the members attending.
