About this event

Climbing Trip to City Bloc – Sunday 18th February | University of Leeds

This trip provides an opportunity for you to do bouldering City Bloc, an indoor bouldering centre created by four former members of the Great British Bouldering Team. They created a bouldering wall that allows beginners to develop the best climbing techniques and also provides experienced climbers quality competition style routes. Bouldering involves climbing a route of around 10 moves to navigate the problem using just shoes and chalk to give you grip, no ropes involved.

We will be leaving at 12.30pm from University and taking you down to City Bloc climbing all on the other side of Leeds city centre. We will be climbing from 13:00 to 14:00 and will have an experienced climber there to give you tips and advice. Once off the wall we will have a little time there for a drink from the cafe and then transport you back to the University for roughly 2.45pm.

Please note: you must have had an induction at City Bloc or be an experienced climber to come on this trip, if you have any questions about this requirement please contact Ben (B.A.Pritchard@leeds.ac.uk).
