Route Setter Vacancies - Wimbledon, London Jobs

© Dave - The Boardroom Climbing

We are searching for those rare mythical creature(s), commonly known as Route Setters.

Creative warriors, artistic souls, blessed with the grip strength to open even the most stubborn of jam jar lids. Vertical dancers with the skill and knowledge to be able to share their joy of movement even on the easiest of climbs.

Dedicated climbers themselves, possessing a wealth of experience under their (tool) belt. An 80's
Argos catalogue of routes and boulders over a wide range of rock and angles, yet still passionate
about the plastic fantastic.

Compassionate towards other climbers, no matter the level of experience. Like a true DJ playing the room, able to adjust their set to the crowd and have everyone dancing with smiles upon their faces.

An OCD attention to detail, and health and safety, because.

Sandbaggers and spankers can head back to Yorkshire ;-)

The Boardroom Climbing Ltd was opened in October 2013 by two chaps, Lee and Dave. Their vision was to push the boundaries of design, create something inspirational, visually striking, and a great place to hang out and climb. And now The Boardroom is coming to Wimbledon, Centre Court Shopping Centre to be precise, and will open in May 2023 with a bouldering only facility
