Paraclimbing Social

White Angles

Improving Access


In collaboration with the UK Paraclimbing Collective, we host paraclimbing social sessions aimed at increasing accessibility within our sport and providing a space for paraclimbers to meet up and experience climbing together. Sessions take place on the first Friday of the month at The Mothership at 6-9pm. This is completely free for pre-paid pass-holders and standard entry price for non-pass-holders. All participants get free shoe hire.

Advanced booking required. Use widget below to book your spot.

James Rudge

UK Paraclimbing Collective

The UK Paraclimbing Collective is a charity set up and run entirely voluntarily by a group of paraclimbers who feel passionate about improving access to rock climbing. Whether we have a mental or physical health condition, a learning disability, sensory difference, neurodivergent, or another disability or condition, we want to show that climbing is for everybody.

Our goal is to bring the wonderful world of paraclimbing to as many people as possible, in a fun, safe, accepting, inclusive and disability-aware space.  We aim to break down some of the barriers that exist for disabled people in accessing our sport, whether that be practical, financial, social, or anything else.

James Rudge (seen on the right above) is a local climbing coach and GB paraclimber that is passionate about inclusion in the community. He will facilitate monthly bouldering sessions that will provide a safe space for people of all abilities. 

James has seen the benefits of climbing with others with adaptive or inclusive needs. He wants to provide a safe space, where people’s needs are prioritised, for climbers in Bristol.
