Liverpool Indoor Bouldering

We currently climb indoors every 2 weeks in Liverpool, alternating between Awesome Walls (roped climbing) and The Hangar (bouldering). Usually on a Tuesday, though this may change- if Tuesdays are no good, let me know as the day does sometimes change.
Bouldering is a form of climbing where instead of long high routes, the 'problems' as they are referred to 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 the activities excellent for newcomers to the sport.
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.
This event is for members of all levels of experience and any member is welcome to come along to any of the sessions.
To come along and join in with us, you will need to register via the event page, and to climb you will need to pay an entry fee directly to the centre when you arrive.

What to bring
Best to wear/bring shorts and a vest/tshirt. Stretchy/loose clothing is best. It can get colder in winter towards the end of the evening, so maybe an extra layer/trackie pants this time of year.
Rock boots will definitly help your climbing and can be hired at the venue if you dont have your own. Prices are on the venue website:
Food & drink
We usually stop for a drink, a rest and a gab half way through the evening. Refreshments and snacks are available to buy at the venue, or feel free to bring your own, or power on through without a break if you prefer!
