"With over 75 different lines to choose from there is an interesting mix of different types of climbs to enjoy and learn on. Along with two dedicated bouldering areas the Manchester Climbing Centre is a fantastic place to start off your climbing experience.
Indoor climbing centres offer the challenges of climbing that you'll find on natural outdoor structures - simply indoors! It's a fun way to stay fit, you'll quickly begin to develop arm, back, finger and core strength as a result of the many reaches and holds that are repeated through to the completion of a climb. It's a great body workout!
This event is for all full and trial OutdoorLads members have either never climbed before or have tried climbing in the past, but cannot sign into a climbing centre to climb unsupervised.
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 at the centre go to: www.manchesterclimbingcentre.com/pricing.
