Come and join OutdoorLads for some bouldering in central London!

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. For this reason, it is 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.

This event is for members of all levels of experience and all are welcome to come along to any of the sessions.

To come along, 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. for entry fee prices go to: www.vauxwallclimbing.co.uk/the-centre/prices.

If you have not been to the venue before you will need to register with them before being allowed to use the facilities. It is best to pre-register before going to the venue (online), as you may  be charged £3.00 at the centre for registering on the day (online registration is free).

To register go to www.vauxwallclimbing.co.uk/pre-register/ and complete the form. As part of the registration process there is also a five minute video that you must watch, and when you arrive at the centre you will be asked some safety questions based on the content of the video.

This will only need to be done the first time you go to the centre, on all subsequent visits you only need to turn up and pay the entry fees.

It is important that if you are going to come along that you sign up so the event leader knows who to expect. For your first time bouldering with us, please contact the event leader in advance to let him know what your skills and experience are.

Note that Vauxwall now offer discounted entry rates when you buy their punchcards, as well as money off items from their shop. All you need to do is wear your Outdoorlads t-shirt!
