THIS EVENT HAS SOLD OUT
The North Face loves climbing, and just as we were once welcomed into this community, we want to invite you to a free day of climbing to experience it for yourself. On the 19th August, we will open the doors to one of the best climbing gyms in London - The Castle Climbing Centre, London.
Climbers of all levels will be treated to free access throughout the day and will be able to climb alongside some of the world’s best climbers – Alex Honnold, Hansjörg Auer and Jacopo Larcher.
We're proud to announce we have won the 2017 Innovation Award from the Sports and Recreation Alliance for our Inclusive Climbing programme. Here's Sophie's story about the project and where it's headed...
Anoushé Husain is a public speaker, civil servant and paraclimber refusing to let any barriers get in her way. Born missing her right arm below the elbow and experiencing multiple health conditions throughout her life, Anoushé shares her story and teaches us a valuable lesson in determination.
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.
This year we’re teaming up with the ‘Get Kids Out Learning’ campaign to encourage more families to drop the smartphone, step away from the laptop and head outside!
We believe that learning activities go way beyond the classroom and want to inspire families to explore the amazing world around them. This could be climbing (of course we’re a little biased!) or loads of other activities available right from your doorstep.
