This promise gives you the opportunity to learn to do rock climbing under the guidance of an amateur but enthusiastic West Wratting climber, Simon Chandler, with 35 years experience of climbing in the UK, Europe and USA.

Stage1: You’ll start at a simple level using the climber’s own climbing wall in West Wratting. It’s a low-level bouldering wall with thick padded crash mats, so falling is safe. On the bouldering wall you can learn about movement on rock (well it’s artificial plastic holds, but you get the idea), and discover the fun of solving bouldering problems. We can do this as soon as you’re ready. It’s on your doorstep, is comfortable in all weathers, and comes with free tea and cake!
See this flickr album for photos of the bouldering wall, including videos, like this tour.

Stage 2: If you’re still keen after that we can visit Big Rock indoor climbing wall in Milton Keynes. There you can do more bouldering, if you wish, or you can learn to climb up higher walls using ropes. Admission to the climbing centre is included, but you may wish to hire some climbing shoes. All other equipment is provided. This can be done anytime over the 2023-24 winter period.

 

Stage 3: Still keen?  Then let’s visit the Peak District for a day on real rock. Transport and all equipment will be provided. If you’re prepared to share the cost of accommodation or camp site fees then we can make a weekend of it. It will be best to do this in Spring/Summer 2024.
