6 May 2017 7 May 2017 GB Devlopment Squad Training Event 6th-7th May

We will be hosting a weekend training event for the GB Development Squad on the Berghaus Competition Wall.


On Saturday the older Training to Perform Tier will be simulating a World Cup format final on European Youth Cup Junior age category level boulder problems, while on Sunday the younger Learning to Train and Training to Train Tiers will be practicing the World Cup final format on boulders for the Youth B & Youth C categories.


The respective tiers will be here from 9am to 5pm on the days described above and while the competition simulations are ongoing the Berghaus Competition Wall will be closed to the public, but there should be limited disruption to the rest of the centre.  This will also involve a full comp wall reset so it will be stripped and reset in the preceding week.

11 May 2017 Core for Climbers FREE workshop

Is your core switched on?


Do you find that your feet keep cutting off on overhangs? Do your hips drop away from the wall? Or are you struggle to push through your feet?

 This workshop will teach you the difference between inner and outer core and how important it is they both work together to keep you on the wall. 

In this 90 minute workshop, you will learn:
✔︎ Why 'Core Strength' is so important for Climbers & how it keeps you on the wall.
✔︎ How to tell whether your Core is working properly.
✔︎ How to link it all together and apply what you've learnt on to the wall!

✔︎ 3 simple exercises that will switch on your core and keep your feet on the wall.
✔︎ How to train both to get maximal results!


When: Thursday 11th May 19:30 
Where: The Climbing Works, Little London Road, S8 0UJ
