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.
Over the past five years The Castle has built up a reputation for delivering a quality inclusive service for people with disabilities. With a growing work base we are now recruiting for an instructor to work in our Inclusive Climbing Programme.
We're delighted to announce that Petzl will be bringing the spirit 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.
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.
