Intro to Climbing @CraggyIsland

15 May 2014 . category: climbing . Comments

For the last couple of weeks I have been taking an intro to climbing at Craggy Island in Guildford. I have previously been bouldering at Surrey Sports Park and a Church in Bristol, but have never been bothered to commit to the hassle of ropes. Despite my initial reservations I loved it, I would highly recommend and although the skills you learn on an intro course aren’t ground breaking the climbing anecdotes and titbits are great to listen to.

I have already planned my first post-course climbing trip at Craggy Island!
