CLIMBING OUTSIDE

Tunbridge Wells Outdoor Climbing

Climbing via top ropes or bouldering on Southern Sandstone requires special consideration, given how prone the rock is to erosion. We want to continue to enjoy the beautiful rocks around Tunbridge Wells, whilst preserving them for future generations.

If you’ve climbed outdoors before, but are unsure about any of the techniques for setting up correctly and what gear you need, give the below videos from the BMC (British Mountaineering Council) a watch.
