Vertical Chill Ice Climbing // Manchester // Review

I am super excited about an upcoming trip to Norway when I'll get to up my game from Scottish Winter Mountaineering and get out on easy water ice for the first time. I'm lucky to live not too far away from Vertical Chill Ice Wall in Manchester, so I headed over to learn the techniques needed for climbing ice and get some tips for the extra gear I might need.

Mile End Climbing Wall // Review // East London

Mile End Climbing Gym is my local gym, so I have spent a lot of time there and I guess I am a little biased about it, but if I'm honest it took me a while to fall in love with this place. When I first started climbing this gym seemed altogether more scary to me than the Arch, perhaps because the routes on some of the walls are taller, but now I love the climbing and the atmosphere in this place.

La Sportiva Katana Velcro Rock Shoe // Review

Love...

Comfort and feel. They are a comfort/performance hybrid so edging is really precise but could also wear on long multi-pitch routes. The blue and green show looks great too!

Would like to see.....

Them change the women’s fit from pink to something else! Better durability in the toe

Indoor Climbing in Brighton

Brighton is a seaside resort on the south east coast of the UK in Sussex.  It has a vibrant climbing community focussed around two climbing centres.  There is also fairly quick access to London, so check out our London guide too.  Also of note are the lively and inclusive women's climbing group, Vertigirls and the LGBT group Not So Trad, which has a strong female membership.  

Indoor Rock Climbing in West Yorkshire

Sandwiched between the Peak District & Yorkshire Dales National Parks, and between the well known climbing areas of Sheffield & Manchester, West Yorkshire might not be the first place you think of for indoor rock climbing but it boasts 6 climbing walls to suit every ability, all within an hour's drive of one another.  These climbing walls are all close to Leeds, but accessible from other areas in West Yorkshire too.  Hope you enjoy this great six.  Why not visit and write us a review?
