Anoushé

In the build up to Paraclimbing London's next public event, we're releasing two incredible articles from Anoushé Husain, the groups founder and Castle sponsored athlete. In this article Anoushé explores what (and who) motivates us to climb. 


Why did you start climbing?

I started because a friend of mine thought it would be a great way of rehabilitating myself following cancer treatment. When I ask other climbers how they started, it’s often because someone they know is already climbing or they have come upon the sport without planning to and decided to try it out.

Young Guns

Thank you to all the young guns who got involved last weekend and made it a great day! Returning for it's third year on Saturday 14th July the day was full of laughs - featuring crazy bonus challenges, a bouldering pad raffle and lots of pysched climbers.


Below are the final scores from both the Finals and Qualifiers. Final scores are best off the former IFSC system: Tops > Attempts > Zone

Paraclimbing London

We've partnered with Paraclimbing London to bring you an exciting event on Saturday 25th August! The Paraclimbing London crew will be in the Centre having a climbing meet-up and you're all invited.


The group's focus is to make climbing more accessible, reducing barriers a paraclimber may face at the wall. Join us to discover a new way of climbing and learn more about the group.

Garden Party

A huge thanks to everyone that came down and took part in the Garden Party Comp last weekend - you can find your score here. You may have noticed we've done something a little different this year and not ordered the scores - this competition is all about having a go and challenging yourself. We hope you'll join us next year for another fun comp. 

This month's garden event is about taking some time to observe, be present, and connect with our playful, joyful, creative wild selves. 
 
You'll discover self-led activities and workshops throughout the day, to restore calm and balance, and nurture wellbeing. These include:

- mindfulness in the garden activities 

Join us in the garden for the Big 

We've got a weekend of spring celebrations coming up this month.
 
The first is a Spring Equinox Celebration on Saturday 24th March,
from 12 to 5 pm.

Spring is a time of new beginnings; we'll be setting intentions, planning adventures, and visualising what we'd like to grow over the coming year.

There'll be:

- creative writing and drawing activities

- gardening/food growing Q&A

- spring crafts and nature games for children, plus a nature trail/egg hunt.

 

Yogi and writer Sophie Lewis delves into Jen Randall's latest film, Psycho Vertical, and the man that inspired it. 


“It was no longer about the joy of climbing, but simply the struggle of it”. Andy Kirkpatrick brought his award-winning film Psycho Vertical to the Royal Institution lecture theatre in central London on the 5th of February.

Garden Wild

Castle Wild is an after school club which takes place on Wednesdays (term-time only) from 4.45 - 6.30pm, for children aged 7 - 13.

The structure of each session follows a natural rhythm that incorporates sharing and listening as a group, playing and making up games to warm up and to hone our animal senses, themed focussed activities such as foraging, bushcraft, and craft-making, and learning through free play; making, building, imagining, observing and discovering the wonders of nature.
