LONDON BOULDERING (SUNDAY) + OPTIONAL PUB (Lunch) VISIT😃

Come and join us for a chilled and fun Sunday bouldering session!
Bouldering is a form of climbing where instead of long high routes, the ‘problems’ as they are referred to, tend to be lower/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. With climbs of various grades suitable for complete beginners to seasoned pros, you decide how much you wish to challenge yourself.
If you have not visited the Stronghold Centre before, it is recommended that you pre-register online prior to your first visit. Please watch the online introduction video as you may be asked a few easy questions to complete your registration at the centre.
We look forward to seeing you at what is always a fun event.
If you are new to bouldering you are welcome to join us at our regular weekly Thursday evening and Saturday morning indoor bouldering sessions which are open to all levels.
All those attending must also be aware of the centre’s own T&C’s etc. You are responsible at all times for your own safety, actions and involvement. As such you should use your own judgement in taking up advice given either by OutdoorLads volunteers or other experienced climbers.

IMPORTANT! - Participation Statement
You MUST complete a Participation Statement, in addition to booking your event space before attending an OutdoorLads event. You only need to complete this Participation Statement once, not for each event you attend.
Anyone with COVID-19 symptoms, even if they are extremely mild, or who has recently tested positive for Covid-19, is asked not to attend.
What to bring
You don’t need much equipment for bouldering at all. The only specialist kit you will need are climbing shoes which can be hired from the centre if you haven’t got your own.
What to wear
It is best to wear either shorts, combats or tracksuit bottoms with a t-shirt or vest. No jeans or trousers which hamper movement. 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
We don’t have a planned break, but encourage everyone to rehydrate during the session. Water fountains are available to refill your water bottles.
After we finish climbing there is the option of heading to the local pub where we can catch up with how our climbing went during the session, along with a spot of lunch.
