Rock Climbing Introduction followed by 'The Best Ribs In London'

  • Climb london West 1

Spaces are full but if we get 8 on the waiting list we can extend the group to 16!

We all know Grok must have been an expert climber and what better way to keep fit than scaling a wall? We have booked 8 places at Climb London's West 1 centre (near Edgware Rd Station) for a private 1 hour climbing introduction. If we get more people interested we do have the opportunity to expand the session to 16 so please add yourself to the waiting list if you find the event full. The fee for climbing is £14.25.

After that we will be heading to the Wargrave Arms for 'London's best ribs' (according to Ribstock). Street traders BBQWhiskyBeer originally set up in this traditional pub as a pop-up restaurant for the summer, however it proved so successful they decided to stay. We've been to check it out and the beef rib is to die for. 

The admin... We are meeting at 12 for a 12:30 start, please don't be late! We are asking for the payment up front as we have already paid for the climbing out of our own pockets and can't afford no shows. We are struggling with linking our Paypal account so will contact members to transfer the fee separately. As is customary we have added £2 to each fee to cover our meet up hosting charges. Please wear loose clothing and wear shows with thin soles. If shoes are a problem they do have some to hire at the centre for an additional £1 however please be aware there are limited sizes available. Please note that lunch is not included in the fee, you will need to pay for this yourself. If alternatively you just want to come for the climbing there is no pressure to come for lunch.

    Stood inside the door to the leisure centre. For those that don't know me, I'm wearing the green coat and purple scarf!

      I've been walking the wrong way for about ten minutes now and only just realised it... I'll be there soon.

    Sadly I can no longer make it so my space is now open if someone on the waiting list wants it?

    Looking forward to this and meeting everyone for the first time. Also would Vibrams count as thin shoes suitable for climbing?

      Hi Elliot, I spoke with the climbing centre and they recommended against barefoot shoes.

      Ok thanks for asking. Might give them a call later to ask what they recommend

    Would love to join the waiting list but RSVP is closed. Does that mean the 'if we get four more' option is off?

      Afraid it's too late to add an additional 8 for climbing but we are inviting those on the waiting list for lunch. Let me know if you want to come and I'll send the details.

      Sorry to miss the climbing, but hopefully there will be something else fun happening soon!
      I'd love to come for lunch anyway!

    Hey, I want in on this but I struggle to commit to anything cause of my job. What does being on the waiting list entail?

    November 11, 2013

    • Fran

      Hi Barry, if someone drops out then spaces will be allocated on a first, come first served basis. I am currently confirming all of the attendees at the moment and any dropouts should happen in the next few days. I'm afraid I can't be any more definite!

    Sounds fab, but hard to get someone to look after the bambinos during the day ... would be up for an evening climb. thanks for organising.

    • Fran

      Hi Aysha, we'll see how this climb goes and if its popular we can look at putting some more evening climbs in!

    Glad you can come! I don't see why you wouldn't be able to bring them, I'll ring them and find out.
