Would anyone be interested in forming an informal mum & baby/toddler bouldering group at Arch climbing centre in Bermondsey? The idea being that we could take turns watching the babies and get some climbing in.
For anyone that doesn't know, bouldering is rock climbing without ropes and harnesses, and involves going up short climbs (of a few metres) with a safety mat underneath to protect you if you fall. I used to go regularly before I got pregnant and I'm keen to start going again. I'm not particularly good at it, but enjoy it and it's great for building up strength and toning your arms and core.
I've contacted the Arch climbing centre and they have an area the babies and toddlers could use (for obvious reasons they are not allowed right next to the climbing walls!) This area is currently free early afternoons on Monday (12pm-4pm) and Thursday (12pm-2pm). In terms of cost the usual price is £7.50 per session but depending on how many people are interested I might be able to negotiate a discount.
If you are interested in this, can you reply or PM me with your preferred day (Monday or Thursday) and email address so I can contact you when we have something firmed up. Please also let me know whether you have climbing experience or if you'll be trying it for the first time.
