Summer Boulder Trip to Fontainebleau

Saturday 15th until Saturday 22nd  June 2013.

This summer we’ll be running a bouldering trip to Fontainebleau in France, one of the most famous bouldering sites in the world.

The trip will last for 1 week and include 7 nights accommodation, transport there and back in a minibus, free on site tuition every day and free equipment hire. All you have to do is turn up, climb and make yourself dinner, all for just £750 per person! 

Our instructors will be joining you on the trip to drive the minibus, provide you with coaching and give video feedback in the evenings after the day’s climbing. Both our instructors hold SPA qualifications and will be on hand to help you as little or as much as you like. All abilities are welcome.

We’ll supply the bouldering matts (one between two) so all you need to bring is your climbing kit and plenty of finger tape!

 

If you’d like any more information please get in touch on the details below.

Progressive Kids Clubs Autumn 2012

We will be running 8 week progressive sessions during the first half term of September, starting on Monday 3rd September.

Each session will focus on a different aspect of bouldering, progressing the children through the various techniques required to become a fully fledged Boulderer.

The 8 week block costs £80 and can be joined part way though if you miss the first few sessions.

If you can’t make the week days, we will also be running Kids Clubs on Saturday and Sunday mornings for £12 a session, which can be booked as single visits on an ad hoc basis.

Please note that children will only be allowed to attend a session that is appropriate for their age. For full details on age and timings please see the grid below.

We look forward to seeing you soon.

The second is For Mums, Chiswick addition. A unique directory of information for Chiswick mums covering activities, classes, services, shopping and events. You can take a look around by following the link below…

Opening day madness…

Thanks to everyone that came down on Saturday, it was great to see so many people. Sorry it was a bit chaotic. We had a lot of great feedback about the setting but please keep letting us know what you think, all opinions are welcome! (info@urbanascent.co.uk) We’ve had a few wide angle pictures of the centre taken (the first is below) but I’ll upload those in our Tour section in the coming days.

See you all soon
