Indoor meets

We meet indoors twice weekly:  for leading, top-roping and bouldering on Thursday nights at the Castle, and for bouldering on Sundays at the Arch.  We also organise other ad-hoc meets at other London climbing walls.

If you haven’t climbed before, you can come to one of our quarterly beginners’ nights.

Thursday nights

Our Thursday night meet is at Castle Climbing Centre, London N4.  We convene in the Cafe from 7pm and aim to start climbing at 7:30.  Attendance averages 20-30 people.  There’s always a point of contact, whose job it is to introduce new members, help pair people up to climb if necessary, answer questions and generally make sure the evening goes smoothly.  After climbing we reconvene at the Brownswood pub over the road, which is a nice pub with good food and a big garden.

If you’ve climbed before, you’re welcome to join us at the Castle.  You’re responsible for your own entrance fee and you’ll need to register to climb (which you can do online in advance) which involves confirming you can fit a harness correctly, tie in, belay and hold a fall.  The Castle has changing rooms, showers and lockers.  For more info, check the Castle website.

You’re welcome to come to a few meets before we ask you to join the club.  If you’d like to come along, please get in touch.

Sundays

Our Sunday bouldering session takes place at Building One, the Arch in Bermondsey.  Rock up any time from 11.  This is a more informal meet than Thursdays, with no point of contact – but if it’s your first time, we’ll put you in touch with one of the regular attendees.  After bouldering, we retire to one of the local pubs for lunch.  You’re responsible for your own entrance fee and you’ll need to register to climb.  The Arch has changing rooms, showers and lockers.

If you’d like to come along, please get in touch.
