As autumn arrives the Castle is becoming increasingly busier and lively. In the next few weeks you may see a lot of fresh faces and keen novices hanging off the walls. Every October universities from around London, such as UCL,LSE will be bringing new climbers to the Castle to let them try climbing for the first time. We are delighted that they have chosen the Castle as a space for their new climbing club members to have a go and learn the ropes in a safe environment.
A great way to complement your climbing training. Sessions are run by various independent yoga teachers on weekday evenings and weekends. For more information, contact them directly via email or weblink.

Thanks to all that attended the Young Guns comp last weekend!
With almost 150 competitors the day kicked off with the 8-11 category. These Young Guns worked their way up 25 tricky blocs set by the Blokfest crew, the top 6 female and male competitors entering into the final round. With Cameron Kemp making a clear lead on the boy's blocs, the female finalists fought off stiff competition with the top 3 competitors entering into a super final to determine the overall winner, Olivia Gent.

We've got a great schedule planned for May Day... a celebration of hedgerows! From a look at traditional hedgelaying techniques, the diversity of plant species hedgerows include, and their importance for wildlife; to the experience of enjoying each change in season through walks alongside them, and wild food foraging.
