BMC Paraclimbing Series 2017

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.

The North Faces of the Alps.

The storm was due at 6pm, we would wake at 3.30am, get to the start of the route by 6am, then climb the Cassin Route (900 meters) of the Piz Badile by early afternoon. The abseils down the North Ridge would take up the rest of the day, hopefully we’d get most of the way down before we got caught in the rain, thunder and lightening.
