After two successful years at the Climbing Hangar (Liverpool), the Women's Climbing Symposium is coming to London. Coaching, lectures and stories led by not just the who’s who of Britain’s elite women climbers, but people you don’t know whose stories you need to know. As always, WCS 2013 promises to be an essential diary date.
This is a unique event bringing together coaching expertise from Britain's top female climbers with relevant talks about our climbing experiences.

The Garden Boulders were officially opened at the Castle's Garden party on Sunday, 21st of July. The Dyno Comp, taking place on the West Side of The Battleship Boulder drew large crowds both in The Castle and from people passing by on Green Lanes. Many of the climbers rediscovered the old Featured Wall, in its new reincarnation as The Featured Boulder. Two of the boulders (Trackside and Battleships) have 6 circuits on them. The Boulders will be open when the centre is open (12pm weekdays, 10am weekends) and close 15 minutes before closing time or dusk (whichever is earliest).
