This is group for women only who are interested in having a go at roped rock climbing. Vertigirls Climbing will actively encourage women with additional needs to join in. I am bi-polar, have learning difficulties and a mild physical issue and climbing has helped me immensely. Hopefully you will like climbing too so we can have a regular indoor meet up and go on some climbing adventures in the outdoors over the summer. I will run introductory courses at a local climbing wall I have sole use of with qualified instructors over the winter. It will be a very safe and supportive atmosphere. It will give you all the tools you need to climb on ropes indoors safely. I will post about the first course soon. Love and Hugs, christine
Once again we have sole use of the Adur Centre in Shoreham for a climbing session Monday the 18th Feb from 6-9pm.
This session is open to all women who can either belay independently or have done a course with us and are still honing their skills. It's £6 to climb and hire of equip if needed. Payable by card only on the night...no cash please.
All you need to do is turn up and climb. There is top roping, leading (some climbs have quickdraws others need them) and a wee bouldering area. This is a drop in so come for the whole session or however long ya fancy. Free parking and several buses plus the train stop near. https://www.adurcentre.org.uk/activities/climbing/
I am hoping to do something at High Sports in Brighton soon!
Love and Hugs,
Our FINAL Womens Climbing Course (until the autumn) is now open for bookings. We have exclusive use of this indoor wall for our course and it will be taught by qualified female instructors. All climbing equipment is provided. You will learn to belay, lower a climber down, put a harness on and attach a climbing rope to it and some time allowing some instruction on technique and movement. This is a perfect introduction to indoor climbing in a very safe and supportive environment. Vertigirls is a non profit community group and has been running these courses for over 10 years. Come along and have a go. There are only 9 places available and this is not the only place we will be advertising so get in quick. No refunds unless someone else takes your place. Concessions available for those on a low income. Email us at [masked] for how to pay concessionary rate as this site will only take full payment. Booking is essential. Love and Hugs, christine
