Entertain me… do a google search now for ‘climbing wall in <your nearest town/city>’.
There are around 350 climbing walls in the UK, so there is a very high chance that there is a wall near your home or work. You may have lived where you are for 20 years but if you’ve never actively looked then you may not have seen it.
The big cities tend to host large climbing centres and as you move into the smaller cities and towns you might start to find local walls inside leisure centres or collage halls. Almost all of these are open to public climbers and all of those would welcome the chance to show you the ropes!
Find your local wall, pop down to have a look and I am sure you will want to take up climbing!
In my next post I will start from the beginning of the ‘how’ we climb.
