Good Christmas times at the wall!!#parthianchristmas #parthianclimbing
Looking for a way to just step off?

If recent times have left you feeling a little overwhelmed, #MentalHealth charity Mind Over Mountains @mindovermountainscic offer immediate and accessible support in an unpressured, unhurried setting.

Join them in the splendid Chiltern Hills Saturday 4 December for an ascent to Ivinghoe Beacon and a wander through National Trust’s Ashridge Estate just North West of Hemel Hempstead.

Lose yourself in the views and still your breath with mindfulness. Take some time just for you, with an opportunity to chat with professionals.

https://mindovermountains.org.uk/events-1/ivinghoe-beacon-2021

Funded places are available to those facing financial hardship, long-term illness, abusive circumstances, have suffered a recent loss or in a full-time care role for another.

Please share and tag others to help us reach those who are struggling

Some of the highlights from another busy week! 👇🏽

1. Building work has begun on our new facility (next door).

2. Jonny delivering a strength & conditioning workshop to the coaches at Parthian Climbing Reading 🧗‍♂️

3. Sports Chiropractor Dan Rampling seeing an increasing number of professional athletes travelling distances to see him. We highly recommend!

4. Darnell Fisher home from Middlesborough FC for a week of intensive rehab with the team.

We go again today with our youth training and Elevate programmes.

Happy weekend everyone!

Hi all, is anyone in need of a climbing buddy in Reading? I'm a beginner at maybe 6a level but have climbed both indoor and out and can lead, top and belay on both.
Hi all,

I recently moved to reading and just had my first climb (boulder) since march last year. It was great fun. Looking forward to meeting future friends

Came into the wall last week for the first time since the lockdown was eased. Good to be back.

Bit surprised to be asked to do a a rope work test identifying multiple mistakes on 6 separate photos, and complete a new lengthy disclaimer before I could climb - I have been coming to the centre for 11 years (and no accidents yet 😂), and have about 25 years of experience climbing outside worldwide including some major routes and big walls. Is everyone having to do this? No big deal, but it did eat into the climbing time a bit.

Anyway, glad you are open and things are getting back to normal on the whole.
Please remove if not appropriate, but I'm selling my home made woody, collection from reading city center: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/294205681366
2️⃣ Next up, Parthian Climbing Reading! Open from 10am 'til late, this is the perfect venue if you (or your slightly older children) are up for trying something a little different. 🤩 And if heights aren't your thing, you can watch your loved ones from afar/the café with a hot cup of coffee.

We feel a WhiteKnights team bonding day coming on...🧗🏼‍♂️
Feel free to check out a vid I made of Crowne Plaza Reading:
Good Afternoon everyone!

I hope this is ok to share, please delete if not appropriate!

I hope everyone is well and not missing climbing too much! Fingers crossed it won't be too much longer till everything is open again :) Throughout this year I've really been missing all my activities and I've made some posters to keep me smiling and dreaming of better days!
I've just done this one for my friend pining over boulding and climbing, I thought you guys might like it, so I hope its ok to share here :)

Have a good week! Maddie
Let's start this week energetically. 💪 Have you tried indoor climbing before? It is a great way to test your strength, balance and agility. 🧗‍♂️

Reading Climbing Centre offers various classes for young and adult climbers, individually or in small groups. Whether you are a beginner or an experienced wall climber, you should check out this place and book your next adventure. https://bit.ly/2TkVbnf
