Outdoor climbing Workshops this weekend

Everyone knows this weekend Boulders is turning five and as part of the celebrations we’ve organised for some top notch outdoor climbing people to run a series of workshops to help get you on the real stuff.

There’s a choice of workshop depending on what it is you’re most keen to get involved with all are being run throughout the day; 10.30qm to 4.30pm, which means they last pretty much the full day.  There is a small cost for each workshop, but we think you’ll agree for a full day’s training the prices are pretty healthy!

Here’s what’s on offer this weekend:

  1. Breaking in to the 6a course with Contour Outdoor’s Andi TurnerThe course focuses on making the next step to being able to more consistently climb at the grade of 6a.  The session targets common mistakes and the fundamentals of climbing technique in order to achieve these goals.  Climbers operating between 5b and 6b may gain the most benefit from this session.
