Overview

We are an inclusive climbing club in the West Midlands. We aim to enable people of all ages and abilities to have access to the positive benefits of climbing. We work alongside people with mental health conditions, learning disabilities and physical disabilities (including but not limited to those who are on the autistic spectrum, amputees, those with neurological conditions and chronic pain) along with their friends and family.

Attending the club:

The cost is £6-7 per session (depending on time of arrival).

If you are interested in coming along please contact Sophie and Tigs Campbell: wmpc2017@outlook.com. We plan the volunteers in advance so please let us know when you intend to come first so we can support you in the best way.

When we meet:

We climb on a Friday between 3pm and 7pm.

Equipment:

It is best to wear tight clothing such as leggings. During the winter it can be cold in the centre so layers are ideal.

You can hire shoes, harnesses and all the necessary climbing equipment free of charge.

Accessibility Information:

We meet at Redpoint Climbing Centre in Birmingham.

Redpoint does not have its own car park but there are plenty of on street parking spaces and a pay and display car park opposite the centre.

There is a dropped kerb and step free access into the building. The doors are manual and wide enough for wheelchairs.

Changing rooms are upstairs with no lift but there is an accessible toilet on the ground floor. Lockers are at a range of heights. The main climbing room, cafe and reception area is step free but there is no lift to the upstairs walls and shop and there are three steps into the bouldering area. There is plenty of seating in the reception area. Assistance dogs are welcome.
