New members’ one day outdoor event

Bowles Rocks – a one day trip to the Southern Sandstone of Bowles Rocks, an hour and a half’s drive from London. The club will coordinate transport and bring ropes and slings. New members just bring your harness, belay device and rock shoes and money for the venue’s £5 entrance fee and the pub. We ask that you attend a short course at a climbing wall in advance to learn how to tie in and belay safely, if you need to. 

If you haven’t climbed outside before, sandstone is an unusual rock  – you’ll experience better friction on other types of rock more common to UK crags. But it’s close to London and it’ll be fun.

We’ll head to a nearby pub for food and drinks afterwards.

Existing members please join us to welcome prospective new members!

Find out about the venue here: http://www.bowles.ac/outdoor-activities/rock-climbing

Keep Sunday 9th in reserve as we’ll move the day if it’s wet on the Saturday.
