Women only climbing at the sandstone crags of Harrison's Rocks | Harrison's Rocks car park | Saturday, 18. April 2020

Climbing for women at Harrison's Rocks



The Plan
We are delighted to offer a "mansplaining" free climbing experience.  A female-only trip offers a uniquely supportive and social experience that may just be the platform you need to get immersed in this remarkable sport.
The sandstone crags of Harrisons Rocks are bolted for top-roped climbing so it is a perfect environment to practice your skills safely whilst enjoying all the exhilaration of climbing outside. Set amongst the beautiful trees of Birchden Woods, this feels a lot further away from London than it really is.
The highly qualified and experienced instructors will deliver the course in a relaxed fashion giving you the skills to climb the sandstone crags safely and confidently. The skills taught during this course are:

Belaying
Knot tying
Use of correct equipment
Injury prevention
Movement Skills
Climbing techniques

A picnic lunch will be taken near the rock **** on Saturday and energy bars provided.
The Climbing
Some indoor climbing experience is required, but no outdoor climbing experience is necessary. Beginners welcome.
What's included

All climbing equipment except climbing shoes.
A fantastic picnic lunch with sweet potatoes, olives, sour cream, manchego cheese, wraps, homemade flapjacks...and more.

What to bring and what to wear

Climbing shoes if you have them. If not a pair of grippy trainers are fine.
Comfortable active-wear for climbing. Warm jumper and hat for later in the day. Waterproof jacket.
Water bottle.
