Windyhill Quarry is not far from Johnstone, it is easily accessed from the road (less than a 30second walk) and is an ideal venue for those that would like to experience bouldering outside.
Bouldering is a form of rock climbing that involves climbing small rock faces or large boulders and is becoming one of the fastest growing sports within the UK. It does not require complicated or expensive equipment such as ropes and rock protection.
This short course at Windyhill Quarry covers everything you need to know to get you started in the sport of bouldering outside. Including basic movement techniques, handholds and how to spot a climber. How to find the bouldering problem you would like to attempt and grades of bouldering problems. How to use guidebooks and topos.
Included in this course is the use of bouldering crash-pads and chalk bags. Ideally you will have your own rock shoes but Aspect Mountaineering can provide theses (we have limited sizes).
