16 people attending
2 places left
Indoor climbing centres offer the challenges of climbing that you'll find on natural rock crags - simply indoors! It's a fun way to stay fit, make new friends and develop your climbing skills further.
This event is for members who have climbed before and do not require help or supervision. Please sign up to the beginner session (same time and place) if you haven't climbed recently or you would like a refresher. As there’s always a group of us, you’d don’t need to come with a climbing partner.
To come along, you should register via this event page and you will need to pay an entry fee directly to the centre when you arrive, please check their website for entry fee prices and note Outdoorlads has negotiated concession prices if you become a member at the centre.
For your first time climbing with us, please contact the event leader and let him know about your previous climbing experience. If you have not climbed at Manchester Climbing Centre before, they will ask you to demonstrate that you can tie in and belay safely. You will also need to register as a climber with them and you can do this through their website, to save time when you arrive.
Please make sure that you sign up on the event so we know to expect you, but please also let us know if you can no longer attend; you can cancel your attendance on this page until 18:30 on the day of the event. If you have any questions or need any more information just get in touch with the event leader by clicking on their profile below.
We look forward to seeing you climbing soon!
Please note that every person participating should be aware of (and accept) that those members perceived as ‘in charge’ or leading the event are not necessarily qualified, do not need to be qualified, and are not regarded by OutdoorLads, or themselves as ‘technical experts’ but are amateur climbers with some experience and who are happy to impart their knowledge. Any advice given should be considered with this in mind by the recipient.
All those attending the event must also be aware of the centre's own terms and conditions of participation and abide by them, along with any instructions given by the centre’s staff. Everyone must also take responsibility for their own safety while participating in Indoor climbing events.
