Climbing Courses

Develop your climbing skills at The Castle. From learning the basics to developing a training plan, we have it all.

February: Wassail

People gathered around the fire to sing songs led by the Castle Choir whilst children made recycled musical instruments and helped to hang cider soaked toast in the apple trees for birds. A Wassail is a traditional celebration of orchards, the rituals performed help to ensure a good and plentiful harvest for the coming year.

Coming Soon - Castle Climbing Technique Clinics!

Now that the dust has settled on the New Year and many people’s resolutions are starting to flag, we thought we would come up with something to reinvigorate everyone’s good intentions – a series of clinics where you can pick up key tips and tricks on specific techniques from our experienced climbing coaches and have all your technique questions answered!

The Castle Academy


The Castle Academy is a fundamental part of The Castle's Youth Development Programme.

As autumn arrives to mark the end of our Indian summer, 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, 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.

For over ten years The Castle has organised climbing holidays in Northern Spain with Climb Catalunya. Catalunya is graced with excellent weather and a wide variety of crags from adventurous multi-pitch, hard-core tufa-filled caves and friendly single-pitch venues all in the midst of stunning scenery.

 So, what did you do during the summer holidays? One young Castle Climber has already raised £26,000 for Great Ormond Street Hospital climbing three alpine routes.  

Bespoke Coaching

Bespoke coaching is well known as the most efficient way to improve performance.  Once basic rope-work has been taught, the pathway to improve your climbing could take many directions, depending on your personal requirements and lifestyle choices. Whether you’re working towards a specific goal, or you are looking to develop better technique, improve your fitness and correct bad habits, working 1:1 with a qualified coach will be the quickest and safest way to get there.

Private Tuition

Whether you want to refresh your belaying/safety skills, learn to climb or are thinking of going on an alpine adventure/tackling a big wall we can tailor your session to your needs. These can be run for just one person or in small groups (maximum 4 participants) and could be a one-off session or a series of sessions.

Please note it will take longer than just one hour for beginners to learn to climb.

 

 

If you are new to climbing or wish to take your skills further and want to progress into leading or climbing outdoors then the BMC, in partnership with London Sport may have the courses for you.

All the courses available are at a reduced price (40% discount) to encourage more females to get involved in the sport of indoor and outdoor climbing.
