Where: Mile End Climbing Wall
Since the 1980s, the Mile End Climbing Wall has been giving east Londoners a place to practice their bouldering skills - obviously without the risk of having to climb an actual boulder. The charity-run enterprise offers around 1500 square metres of surface to climb inside an old pipe engineering works within Mile End Park. There is low level climbing without ropes, lead climbing and space for more advanced sessions too.
If you would rather be outside, the centre also organises climbing day trips for groups or private bookings, as well as women-only excursions.
