As most of you know, there's a little more to climbing than pulling hard and having strong arms. Having a good range of motion and flexibility is key to successful movement, yet is frequently overlooked.
Join Sandra on 14th January & 11th February to develop your yoga practice and reap the benefits for your climbing too! The workshops will focus on strength, flexibility, balance, body positioning, as well as your head game!
We’re super excited to announce that Tour de B.I.F.F is BACK along with our legendary Christmas bash!
Join us on Saturday 16th December to celebrate...
We’re planning a very special evening for competitors and party revellers alike. The Beastmaker International Footless Festival is a bouldering comp with a difference where you can't use your feet to climb any of the blocs!
Do you ever say 'take'? Suffer from red point nerves? Do you feel like your head is holding you back? Do you love that feeling of being 'in the zone' and want it to be the norm, not the exception? Don't let your physical training go to waste. Climb!
Join Hazel on 18th and 19th January to learn some mental training techniques for your climbing.

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.
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.
A great way to complement your climbing training. Sessions are run by various independent yoga teachers on weekday evenings and weekends. For more information, contact them directly via email or weblink.
