/ city centre birmingham
I'm after bouldering, auto belays if there are any and maybe some roped climbing if anyone is free tuesday night, operating in the 6's.
Haven't been to the Birmingham Bouldering Centre, but Redpoint is excellent for both roped climbing and bouldering.
Don't think it has any autobelays though.
Birmingham bouldering centre has outstanding bouldering, much better imo than the other walls around, plenty to go at at all grades.
Redpoint is very good for routes, no auto belays though and the gradings a bit stiff, but the route setting is quality with a good variety of walls and angles. The bouldering is decent too, but not a patch on the bbc.
Redpoint is excellent and has both a large roped climbing area and a large (and currently in the process of expanding) bouldering area.
I went to Aston about 12 years ago, Chem eng and applied chemistry. Bloody hell I'm getting old
I use Birmingham Bouldering Centre I just love the place, it is only Bouldering but I prefer that than ropes these days.
I'm sure Tuesday is a student night. £4.50.
Well worth checking out.
I only get to climb in my lunch times at the moment so I'm trying to justify paying the £10 initial starter trip to get to BBC, maybe they'll do me a lunchtime special...
Life registration is a fiver plus climbing cost. Speak to Ste the manager about lunchtime climbing.
Hi Dave. To climb at the BBC you do not have to take up our life membership scheme. You can climb as a day member for £7 off peak or £8 on peak (4pm-10pm).
All the circuits are currently new and we change them every 3 1/2 weeks, so there is always new stuff to go at.
Kind regards Steve.
