Awesome Walls Taster Session

1 guaranteed spot  left for the taster so message me ASAP if you still want to attend 


Anyone interested in becoming a member in Awesome Walls Climbing Centre? It's a great place to practice or start climbing. You can either boulder (climb without ropes) or rope climb. There are also a lot of lead climbing routes for the more experienced. Their website is available on http://www.awesomewalls.ie/

The Taster Session involves teaching you how to climb safely, set up for a climb and belay a partner. This will be a 1 hour induction to become a member in Awesome Walls. Rental of harness is included. Climbing shoes aren't required but if you want the whole experience then you can rent them for €3.50. After the induction we can stay for the day. 

The Taster Session is €25. You will have to pay in advance before your place is confirmed. You can pay via paypal to [masked] and please make sure that you pay for the transaction fee yourself. You do so by choosing "I'm sending money to family or friends". 

Deadline for payment is Monday, 27th January at 6pm. Apologies for the late notice but they want numbers confirmed by then to guarantee instructors. 

We've been climbing regularly mostly on Saturday afternoon and just looking to get it going most weekends :) Let me know if you are already a member and just want to climb. Members can just pay on the day
