What is Queer Climbing?

Queer Climbing is a community group supported by Redpoint and Flashpoint Bristol.

It is run by a group of climbers who want to make climbing more accessible to people in the LGBTQ+ community.

The group meet up regularly to provide a friendly, welcoming community space where everyone can climb together and express themselves freely.

Everyone is welcome no matter what your climbing experience! There isn’t any fitness or strength criteria – all levels are welcome, even complete novices!

Want to join us?

Come by and say hi! We’re at:

  • Redpoint Bristol on the 3rd Wednesday of the month
  • Flashpoint Bristol on the 1st Wednesday of the month

Outside of this we hope that people will also use the session as a social hub to look for climbing buddies, make new friends and plan fun adventures.

Flashpoint & Redpoint are supporting the group in part by offering a great deal for “First Time” climbers: £10 for Entry, Annual Registration and Shoe Hire for one month!
