Can you tell a heel hook from a double backed harness?
Us neither and you won’t need to know any climbing lingo to enjoy this Big Deal at The Climbing Academy.
Located on Portman Street, in the old News International building, The Climbing Academy features over 1100 sq. metres of bouldering walls.
Bouldering is low level climbing which is done above crash mats. You get all the fun of climbing but without the hassle of equipment.
The different routes, or problems, at The Climbing Academy are designed to test climbers of all abilities from beginners to experts.
Getting started is easy. Just turn up and the friendly staff will take you through the safety procedures and you can get started.
Bouldering is for everyone, young and old, male and female, and can include those of all physical and mental abilities. Just think about kids climbing trees – it’s as natural and simple as that.
Available from 10am til 10pm Monday to Friday and 10am til 6pm Saturday and Sunday, this Big Deal comes in three varieties:
Option one is for one person to have three indoor rock climbing sessions, including membership and shoe hire.
Option two is for one person to have one month of indoor rocking climbing sessions, including membership.
Option three is for one person to enrol on the movement and technique rock climbing course.
The course is perfect for new climbers and your experienced, friendly coach will cover footwork, body positioning, different holds, flagging, route reading, and training basics.
Option three includes membership, three hour-long, indoor rock climbing sessions with coaching and shoe hire.
The Climbing Academy has inspired many a visitor to reach for the highest praise when reviewing the facilities. This is from a recent TripAdvisor review:
‘Absolutely love this place. Tons of space and tons of problems for all levels. Friendly, helpful staff, a nice café and a shop. The problems are changed regularly and there are two fabulous endurance walls, clean changing rooms and plenty of lockers. Oh, and it’s dog friendly. Can’t beat it!’
This Big Deal would be ideal for anyone who wanted an introduction to rock climbing.
It would also be perfect for a birthday party or even as part of a stag day, and with a valid end date of 31st March 2016, will do nicely for a Christmas gift!
Challenging, rewarding and fun, this Big Deal with The Climbing Academy is a great way to reach new heights.
