We're delighted to announce that Petzl will be bringing the spirt and 'joie de vivre' of Petzl's RocTrips to the UK this Autumn. We'll be playing host to the first leg of the tour on Saturday 11th November.
Departing from Petzl HQ near Grenoble in early November with caravan in tow, the Petzl crew will be making the long journey across France to visit 3 of the UK's premier climbing walls, finishing up at Kendal Mountain Festival's Basecamp.

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 experiences in the build up to Round 2 of the Paraseries at the Castle on 17th October.
Wild Country will once again be joining forces with the Wideboyz, Tom Randall and Pete Whittaker to present a round of their 'Crack School' here at the Castle.
The objective? Share their knowledge from climbing some of the world's hardest offwidths with climbers of all abilities at the wall. Participants will have the opportunity to experience all aspects of this climbing discipline using specially designed finger, hand and offwidth cracks.
Round 2 of the Paraclimbing Series will take place here on Tuesday 17th October.
Open to all aspiring paraclimbers, the BMC and Climb Scotland Paraclimbing Series is a friendly competition aimed at giving people an authentic competitive experience. This series is organised by the BMC, Climb Scotland, Manchester Climbing Centre, Newcastle Climbing Centre, Edinburgh International Climbing Arena and the Castle Climbing Centre, London.
The series will also act as a basis for talent identification and selection for the GB Paraclimbing Team.
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.
