Climbing/Bouldering­­­­­ Session

Hi guys

This event is now full but you can sign up to our next session here: http://www.meetup.com/FillMyWeekend/events/189842292/

Kind regards

Benjamin


This isn't regular climbing. There are no ropes, and no walls more than 4 metres high. But the challenging routes to the top make this a great experience for beginners and veteran climbers alike. 

As much a mental as a physical challenge you must plot your route carefully...

Bouldering means climbing free – without ropes, harnesses or reluctant partners.  Bouldering isn’t about climbing really far or very high – the highest you will go indoors is around 4 metres high. It is about having fun, finding challenges that appeal to you, and also having to work hard sometimes.

 This meetup includes:

• Discounted entry to the climbing centre

• Access to the climbing centre for the rest of the day so you can stay and climb for as long as you like

All equipment hire (climbing shoes and chalk)

• Locker access for valuables, coats and bags


The price of this event is £10.50 (if you bring your own climbing shoes on the day then I'll give you £2 back in cash).

Please note that although Paypal is used for payment, you do not need a Paypal account, just a credit or debit card. 


Any questions or for more information please refer to http://archclimbingwall.com/ or ask below.

PS Here are some FAQs from their website...

• What... no ropes?!

While you are climbing, there are thick padded mats underneath you. These are there to protect you if you fall.

• I can’t do a single pull up to save my life. Am I fit enough?

Yes! Bouldering is not about keeping up with a group, but about getting in touch with your own body and its abilities. As long as you can walk up and down stairs and don’t have any medical problems you will be just fine.

• Is bouldering a good workout?

Bouldering is an incredible workout! Climbing is the original natural workout for a strong and flexible human body. Of course it works your hands, arms, shoulders and back like no other sport, but what is less known is that it works your core muscles and your lower body just as much. Expect to feel a little bit sore after your first sessions, and remember to keep drinking water!

• What do I need to bring?

Just bring loose, or stretchy, comfortable clothing and a jumper for when you are taking a break or waiting before your lesson starts.

• Where exactly is it?

Check this map, it's about 3-5 mins walk south of Bermondsey Tube Station (Jubilee line): http://archclimbingwall.com/biscuit/map/


PPS Aside from the obvious walls the climbing centre facilities are:

• Changing rooms

• Toilets and showers

• Water fountain

• Stretching area

• Large lounge area for relaxing before between and after climbs.

• Small café

    Hi guys

    For those of you climbing tomorrow, most of you will be regulars/repeaters. If anyone is new or is bringing somone new can I ask you to please fill in this form before you arrive: http://archclimbingwall.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/10/REGISTRATION.pdf You can do it on arrival it just leads to a slight delay.

    Tomorrow is the first dedicated climbing event we've had without a lesson going on as well. If anyone is looking for a lesson please let me know so I can look at adding you to one of our future climbing events which include lessons.

    I'm not sure how long I'll be able to stay for tomorrow, perhaps only an hour but please do stay on as long as you want - you can climb all day if you like - and feel free to enjoy the pub down the road with those lovely pies that some of us enjoyed last time.

    See you tomorrow at 11 - if you arrive after 11.15 I'll be on the walls so please be on time :)
