The centre has climbs at a wide range of grades (difficulties) to suit everyone from beginners to seasoned pros!

Join us for the monthly "Fri-Gay" night at The Climbing Hanger (TCH) in Reading!

The session is supported by one of the centre's own coaches giving you the opportunity to get some professional tuition. And is a great opportunity to connect with the wider LGBT+ community in the Reading area.

What is bouldering?

Bouldering is a style of climbing that involves short routes, called "problems", which can be tackled without the need for ropes and harnesses. This makes it an ideal place to start if you are new to climbing. The routes emphasise technique and problem solving so it's a workout for your brain as well as your body. As a result, bouldering is a very sociable activity - giving you the opportunity to catch-up and meet new people as you try out problems together. 

New to bouldering?

The only equipment you need to get started is a pair of climbing shoes. These can be hired from the wall for free. The event leader will be on-hand to get your started and give a few points on technique. So you'll quickly be climbing with the rest of the group.
