The world’s best paraclimbers are set to compete at the International Federation of Sport Climbing (IFSC) Paraclimbing Cup in London this weekend (21-22 September).  The competition is being organised by the British Mountaineering Council (BMC) and will be held at the Westway Climbing Centre.

Meet our new staff member!

The Castle is proud to support YES Outdoors, a charity that engages with at risk youth through adventure based mentoring (including climbing). The climbing team is led by Castle climber Sergeant Tony Quinn and he is leading the charge to recruit new volunteers to work with young people on a one-to-one basis. All volunteers will receive formal training.

On the 21st and 22nd of September, visitors will have unprecedented access to The Castle and its gardens with guided tours. This year, London's biggest architecture festival, Open House London, coincides with the New River's 400th anniversary and Capital Growth's Edible Gardens Open Day.

Do you want to show your friends where you spend all your free time? Or maybe you're new to climbing and want to check out The Castle before your first visit? Maybe you're simply curious about that great big Castle in North London...

Well now you can visit The Castle inside and out using Google Streetview.

Don't forget to come back to see the latest developments. The Loft (Engine House- Floor 3) will be opening mid-September.

All the Castle community mourns Felix's death in Yosemite on the 2nd of June 2013. Felix, 28, was a regular climber at The Castle and worked for a brief time in the shop (when it was run by Urban Rock). He was climbing East Buttress on El Capitan when he was hit and killed instantly by rock fall.

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).
