Bouldering at The Castle

 

Exerk 'Find Your Fun' information


BEFORE YOU ARRIVE:

If you haven’t been to The Castle before, you’ll need to fill in the Unsupervised Climbing and Bouldering Registration Form. We will only be bouldering, not climbing. You can register at the centre too but easier to do in advance so our group gets in quickly. 

FIRST-TIME BOULDERERS: Please let me know in advance if you’re a beginner. Not a problem at all - the aim is to try new things - it’s just so I know so we pair people up to look after each other. Here’s a brief article I wrote on the basics of bouldering.

ADDRESS:  The Castle Climbing Centre, Green Lanes, London N4 2HA

TIMINGMeet at 7:30pm prompt (if you don't know me yet, have a look at what I look like on @exerkyourself)

WHAT TO BRING: Leggings/ stretchy trousers, a warm long-sleeved top as it is quite chilly there, climbing shoes (can rent from the centre if needed), water bottle.

UPON ARRIVAL:

I'll be waiting by the front desk to welcome you. You'll need to complete your registration (have your photo taken!) and pay your entry fee (£12.50) directly to The Castle. Then get changed, put stuff in lockers (£1 coin return).

Once we've gathered, we can all introduce ourselves and meet each other. This is about finding your fun in staying active and a massive part of that is the people we hang out with! 

I'll explain the basics of bouldering and do a warm up, then we’ll be ready to start bouldering. 

I’ll be there to help guide you - if you arrive late, call me on 07832904832 once you've registered and put your things in the locker and I'll come and find you. 

We can then boulder as long as we like. 

OTHER BITS AND PIECES: 

  • You can rent climbing shoes for £3
  • There are lockers to put your stuff in (£1 coin needed)
  • Come with short nails...long nails scrape the wall
  • Remove jewellery, especially rings
  • There are loos and showers
  • I have chalk for our hands, but you can buy your own if you like

WHY we call these 'FIND YOUR FUN' ACTIVITIES

While the rest of the world fret about gym memberships, health crazes and fad diets, Exerk believes that the way to make health & fitness an integral part of your life is to find it fun.

If we align enjoyment, challenge and support...the trickier elements of prioritisation, discipline and achievement become easier.

If you have any friends who might be keen to try bouldering, or more generally find their fun in staying active, please do invite them to register to join too. 

 

ALSO! Am building up a series of little videos about these Find Your Fun activities, so if you're up for it, at the end of the session, I'd love to capture you in a little video!
