BSC2022: Castle Inn Sport Climbing (Friday 9.45am)
6 people attending
0 places left
1 person waitlisted
If this event is full, book on anyway, I will be increasing numbers with demand as much as possible.
Whether you're an indoor climber wanting to try the real thing outdoors or a seasoned veteran, Castle Inn has something to offer, with a great selection of well protected routes, with a good bunch at the easier end of the scale. For those who haven't done sport climbing before, there will be a quick tutorial session at the start of the event, you just need to be competent at top rope belaying and have a pair of climbing shoes.
We will need to ensure a good balance the number of experienced and novice climbers, so please send me a message with your prior climbing experience and any equipment you will bring (e.g "done lots of indoor top rope climbing, got my own harness")
IMPORTANT! - Participation Statement

You must bring your own climbing shoes, helmet and harness. We may be able to lend helmets and harnesses if you message the leader well in advance of the event (2 weeks minimum).
If you have ropes, a sling, screw gate, belay plate and any other relevant sport climbing gear, please do bring these too, but be sure to check you're equipment if it's your first outing for a while.
Appropriate warm, preferably windproof, clothing will be needed. A waterproof jacket should also be bought in case of rain.
Sun lotion is best applied before leaving home, to avoid greasy hands on the crag.
It can be advisable to use insect repellent to help ward off the midges (but don't get it on any climbing equipment)!
