Catalyst Teams

Catalyst Teams

If you live in or regularly access the London area, you can enrol yourself or your young climber(s) onto one of our bouldering teams! These teams cater to climbers as young as 5 years old as well as adult teams for complete beginners, improvers, performers and masters who are getting into bouldering at an older age.

The main aspect we pride ourselves with these teams is the social in-person climbing element that happens weekly for each team with one or a few of our great coaches at various climbing gyms around London. Beyond that each team member is given a coaching plan to follow for the rest of the week with constant feedback to ensure your improvement over time.
