COMP WALL SETTING SCHEDULE

During the busy winter competition climbing season our Comp Wall gets used for a variety of different sets and events with lots of re-setting. Please make a note of the up and coming schedule.

 

The Castle glows bright for its 20th birthday!

20 years have passed since the Castle was born as a climbing centre from its origins as a Victorian water pumping station. Rich in history and architecturally unique, this North London gem that is a community for many climbers deserved a good birthday bash. And wow did we have one!

Once again The Castle put on a successful garden party to say thank you for our customers support over the year and to celebrate the centre's achievements.

The Castle ran its first Open Junior Bouldering Event on Saturday, 16th of May 2015 for young climbers aged 8 to 14.  The event was held in the Loft with 4 categories competing on 10 blocs set specially for them.  Many of the climbers were hoping for a place on the Castle's Climbing Academy next autumn- the first step towards a place on the elite Comp Squad.  Castle Coaches and Junior Coaches were present offering advice and support to the young climbers.

There will be a Scarpa Boot demo on Monday 10th November. We will also be running a mini comp in conjunction with this and the reset of the Panels. All score cards will be put in for a draw for a pair of shoes. Also on the night Scarpa shoes can be bought at a 10% discount from the shop.

All 6 of the Castle’s Competition Squad members have been training hard throughout 2014 to get the new competition season off to a flying start, and they certainly haven’t disappointed!

The competition squad has being going from strength to strength and if recent ascents and comp results are anything to go by we can expect a stellar season in 2015. 
Below is brief round-up of what’s been going on over the summer.

The final round of Blokfest - the UK's biggest and best bouldering series- was held at The Castle on Saturday, the 15th of February. We've uploaded the highlights video onto our website. Thanks as ever to Ben Grubb for a superb job and the whole Blokfest team!

In her latest contribution to our Comps Blog, Junior Coach Grace Spence-Green gives her take on what it takes to perform well in (and enjoy) competition. Grace narrowly missed on a place in the finals, finishing 6th in the final round of Blokfest at The Castle. Photo: Molly Thompson-Smith getting ready to let loose on a finals bloc.

Looking forward to the next set? Want to know how much longer you can work on that project for?
