ClimbFrance at The Castle Climbing Centre.

On Friday November 13th both Dylan and Ollie from ClimbFrance will be at The Castle Climbing Centre (London) for an informal climb / chat followed by food and (free) wine in the Cafe afterwards.

The idea is to get as many of our London based regulars to meet up and climb together. The evening will also provide the opportunity for those not familiar with ClimbFrance and the holidays and courses we offer to meet us (the staff) and our regulars.

We will be meeting from 6.30pm onwards and plan to eat around 9.00pm.

Hope you can make it!
