Young Guns 2017

 

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. 

An opportunity to be part of our lively reception team at The Castle has arisen! 

We are looking for a receptionist to work on our busy front desk 10 to 24 hours a week. Flexibility is essential as the shifts are varied and cover weekdays, evenings and some weekends. 

A friendly open manner, enthusiastic attitude towards excellent customer service and a high standard of written and spoken English is essential. The ideal candidate should be computer literate and have previous experience in customer service roles. An interest in climbing and sustainability is an advantage.

As the saying goes ‘For want of a horse the battle was lost’ and in a similar vain for want of a Colin Kirkus the trad climbing scene may have become a poor imitation of continental rock. It’s commonly believed that rock climbing in the UK started with Haskett Smith’s ascent of Napes Needle in the Lake District. From there onwards a number of luminaries pushed UK climbing to new grounds. Colin Kirkus was one of those who forged a path in the 1930’s. It became his decade.

 

The Castle Café is looking for a temporary full time chef who is passionate about sustainable vegetarian/vegan food and will be excited about working with our existing kitchen team and our garden team to produce great value, healthy food for hungry climbers!

What’s happening?
In June 2014 the Castle switched over to a new customer database known as Rock Gym Pro (RGP). At this time most of our customers will have completed a new registration form. 

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.

E9

Few new climbing grades create myths or monsters, rarely are they game changers, not so with the grade of E9. The first E9 was the legendary Indian Face which made a new leap in boldness. It took the madcap genius of Johnny Dawes to create its fatal mystery. It is a perfect line up one the UK’s most imposing mountain crags and heart stoppingly bold. It’s a crag steeped in history. As the route gets steeper the gear gets worse, the line inescapable and the crux comes need the top. It remained unrepeated for 8 years.
