Bouldering: the alternative to Xmas shopping!

  • As an anti-date to the joys of Xmas shopping and for all those who hate crowded shopping places in the run up to Xmas, how about coming bouldering instead?

    Bouldering is a bit like scrambling, but sideways as opposed to up, although there will be some up sections.  There are no ropes, but crash mats should you fall.  We'll be able to practice climbing techniques and how comfortable you are with moving across different grades of 'rock face'.

    It's £8 a session and £2.50 to hire some rock shoes (they won't let us use climbing boots!).  My plan is to be there just before noon and stay until 4pm, although I don't expect everyone to stay the full 4 hours!  And I'll only stay beyond 2pm if I know other people are turning up!

    So, if you want to practice your scrambling skills on a cold wet grey December day come bouldering instead!

    Martin, sorry I can no longer make it along - have just been given a free stall at the Birmingham German market over that weekend and so will be baking/ selling/ promoting my shortbread on the 17th/18th.
    Hope you'll all pay a visit and buy some😊☃️🎄❄️

      That's exciting, congrats! Remind me nearer the time and I'll pop along. Will you need any help?

    Creation has a dazzling array of climbing routes more than half of which are equipped with ropes so if any of you have harnesses then bring them along. Or hire them when you are there. I'll be more than happy to belay for anyone. I'll also bring ropes should anyone fancy leading :-)
