Introduction to Climbing - Women Only Bouldering Lesson 

Levels: Beginners to those with a little experience 

We are excited to host another Introduction to Bouldering lesson at the Biscuit Factory in Bermondsey, this is a great chance to learn the basics of climbing and meet some other kickass ladies and join our growing community of Gutsy Girl Climbers!

This is our first mid-week session! It runs alongside the Women Improvers Lesson so we can meet up with returning climbers after our session and climb together until we can climb no more.

After the session we'll head somewhere local for a drink! 

What is Bouldering?

Bouldering is rock climbing stripped down to its raw essentials, using no ropes or harnesses, just using climbing shoes, chalk and safety mats. Biscuit Factory is one of 3 of Arch Climbing Centres in London, with routes varying grades of difficulty and new routes every week it’s a great chance to climb new challenges each week. 

Bouldering is great for all fitness levels and is a great full body work out, not just your arms. If you’ve got a killer core from pilates and great balance from yoga, you’ll transition quickly into climbing!

Plus a Gutsy Girl host will be on hand to answer any questions you may have and take some epic photos of you scaling to the top of the wall.
