Brighton indoor bouldering - everyone welcome
8 people attending
4 places left
Join ODL for a fun, informal bouldering session at Boulder Brighton.
Bouldering is a style of climbing free from the use of ropes and takes place above safety matting. This means that regardless of your level of fitness or ability everyone can enjoy bouldering at their own pace. It’s a superb way to keep fit in a social environment.
Sundays can be a little busy but after 2pm the centre has a no children policy so it's a bit quieter. After the session, the (optional) plan is to go to a nearby pub Sunday lunch or just a drink.
First time bouldering?
No problem. If it’s your first time bouldering then we will be happy to orientate you, taking you through the safety aspects, the routes and some simple techniques.

What to bring
You don't need much equipment for bouldering at all, which is another part of its appeal. The only specialist kit you will need are (rock) climbing shoes which can be hired from the centre if you haven't got your own. kit hire prices can be found on their website
Lockers are available to keep small bags, jackets, shoes, etc. secure
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. If you have any OutdoorLads branded clothing then please try and wear this as it will give the group a good level of visibility. Any jewellery such as rings, watches, chains or bangles should be removed before beginning the session to prevent injury.
Food & drink
Bring some water. There is a cafe area at the centre where hot and cold drinks along with snacks can be purchased. Bottled drinks can also be purchased here.
